Ipswich: Fundraisers kick off appeal at Portman Road
IPSWICH: It’s a colour more associated with their fierce Norfolk rivals.
But Ipswich Town Football Club (ITFC) got into the charity spirit by helping to launch an all-yellow fundraising bid.
Nurses from Marie Curie Cancer Care used Portman Road to kick-off the charity’s ‘Paint the Town Yellow’ appeal.
The charity wants Suffolk people to make a donation in return for a daffodil pin as part of a nationwide drive to raise �5m.
Money raised from the appeal will provide more free nursing care for people with a terminal illness in their own home.

Simon Clegg, chief executive of ITFC, said: “I am delighted to help launch Marie Curie Cancer Care’s daffodil appeal here in Ipswich.
“Marie Curie is the official charity of the Football League this season which makes it doubly significant that the Suffolk launch took place at the home of Ipswich Town.”
