Marie Curie gets £65k boostThere has been a huge raise by Marie Curie Cancer Care during street collections at its Great Daffodil Appeal in Edinburgh and the Lothians during February and March this year that was about £65,518.32.

Cancer patients will be cared for by nurses with the money raised that will be used to support the charity's Edinburgh hospice in Frogston Road West and that too in patients’ homes.

Across the UK, over 2,700 nurses, doctors and other healthcare staff is employed by the charity to aid cancer patients. About 29,000 people who are suffering from terminal illness will be provided care this year.

There were various events like street collections, yellow-themed days and charity auctions that were supported by the members of the Leith Capitol Mecca Bingo club to raise money.

In an attempt to support cancer, landmarks, including Inverness Castle and Piccadilly Circus, were made to turn yellow, across the UK.

There will be annual swimathon that will help the charity to raise money in which swimmers will be diving in with 22,000 others around the UK.

It will be on Friday that the Olympiad event will take place for about three hours and there are spaces still left to be occupied, it was stated.
