A staggering £16,109 has been raised by the Falmouth fundraising group of Marie Curie Cancer Care over the last year.

The money comes from Great Daffodil Appeal collections, a Great Daffodil Walk, the Holly Ball, a Blooming Great Tea Party and collecting boxes in shops and local businesses, plus donations gathered by supporters.

Readers are asked to consider hosting a Blooming Great Tea Party this summer – to register sign up by July 7 at mariecurie.org.uk/teaparty
