‘Daffodil’ Bus on Route to Promote Charity

A Bus has had a makeover to promote nurses in Lincolnshire.

Marie Curie cancer nurses have redecorated a Stagecoach vehicle in daffodils and fun images to promote their nursing service.

It is being officially launched by the charity's Patron, Lady Graydon, at 10.30am on Brayford Wharf in Lincoln on Monday.

The bus will be used on various routes around the city and more rural areas.

Marie Curie Cancer Care's community fund-raising manager Judy Glossop said: "I am simply thrilled that Lincolnshire will now have a dedicated bus for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

"This is such an imaginative way to inform people about the vital work of our Marie Curie nurses in Lincolnshire while at the same time encouraging people to support us in any way they wish. The Lincolnshire Marie Curie nurses provide free nursing care to people with terminal cancer and other illnesses, giving them the choice of dying at home.

The 52 Marie Curie nurses in the county provided 42,380 hours of home nursing care last year.
