A hospice showcased hundreds of drawings produced on an iPad by carers and relatives.

Marie Curie Hospice in Lyndhurst Gardens, Hampstead, displayed 365 daffodils produced on the Apple tablet on Thursday of last week.

Rabbi Markus Lange, who organised the evening, said: “We made 365 daffodils, the symbol of Marie Cure.

“The number symbolises the 365 days of care that carers give throughout the year.

“The night was to express our appreciation for the carers.

“It brought some light to the lives of patients in difficult circumstances.”

The drawings will be mounted onto six large canvasses which will become a permanent feature in the hospice’s cafeteria.
