YOUNGSTERS at The Ribbon School in Murton have been taking part in the Mini Pots of Care scheme to raise cash for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

After signing up to the scheme, all the children in the school were given the growing kits in autumn to take home and grow their own daffodils.

This week, the proud pupils took their plants back to the Barnes Road primary school to compare flowers and decorate the pots.

To add to the theme, and to help raise money for the charity, all the children paid £1 to dress up as daffodils, wearing yellow, green and brown.

Michelle Ord, a staff member at the school, said: “The children have looked after their flowers all over the winter and have taken really good care of them.

“It has been really good for them to learn all about the charity, about nurturing their plants and about spring as well.”

Marie Curie launched the scheme as a way for children aged three to 11 to learn about science, nature and the work of charities.
