HAMPSTEAD'S Marie Curie hospice is hoping flower power will help raise thousands of pounds for vital care.
The hospice on Lyndhurst Gardens is looking for hundreds of volunteers across North London to collect money as part of their annual Great Daffodil Appeal.
Ham&High editor Geoff Martin was the first to offer his services.
He said: "There will be 600 Marie Curie collectors out on the streets on March 13 and I'm delighted to be one of them.
"I have first hand experience of the wonderful work they do and I am forever indebted to the staff of the Hampstead Hospice, so putting a few hours aside to collect on their behalf is a very small way of saying thanks."
Volunteers will collect money from different locations. All money raised will go towards the hospice.

Liz Allen, from Marie Curie Hospice said: "The hospice is reliant on donations. It costs �4.3million to run and we need donations for half of that cost so if people cannot spare a couple of hours then please look out for one of our collectors on the street. Every penny makes a difference."
