LOCAL primary schools have only two weeks left to sign up for Mini Pots of Care, a fun planting and painting activity that raises money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.
Marie Curie Cancer Care is looking for primary schools and youth groups (aged 3-11) to take part in their annual Mini Pots of Care campaign, sponsored by Yellow Pages.
So far, more than 160,000 children from 1,400 schools and groups have signed up. Everyone taking part receives a free planting kit and activity guide. Daffodils are planted in the mini-pots in October, when the bulb has bloomed the children then take part in the national 'paint your pot' competition held on February 29.
Marie Curie Cancer Care provides high quality nursing, totally free, to give terminally ill people the choice of dying at home supported by their families.
Teachers are urged to sign up their schools before the closing date of October 1, 2007. Registrations can be made by phone on 08700 340 040 or online at www.mariecurie.org.uk/minipotsofcare
