A RECENTLY opened flower shop in Prudhoe has quickly become a big part of the local community.

Kerry Slipper, the owner of Emily’s Daffodils on Front Street, Kerry Slipper is a great supporter of the Marie Curie Hospice in Newcastle and is passionate about helping to raise funds for the charity.

Emily’s Daffodils stocks floral arrangements for all occasions.

The latest collection of over £100 was handed over by Kerry in her shop in an event arranged by Northumberland County Councillor Gordon Stewart, who represents Prudhoe South.

He said: “Kerry’s business is very welcome in the town and her fundraising efforts are appreciated.”

Marie Curie provides care and support for people living with terminal illnesses and their families.

Last year the charity cared for more than 40,000 people across the UK.

The flower shop is within Prudhoe Vapes at 4 Front Street.
