Celtic star Kris Commons and partner Lisa Hague have said it with flowers in a touching tribute to their still-born daughter.

They have handed over 100 bunches of daffodils to the Bearsden Marie Curie Cancer Care shop.

The blooms will be given to every customer on Saturday (February 1) - the date of daughter Lola’s birthday.

Lola was sadly still-born six years ago and every year Kris and Lisa make a gesture in her memory.

This year, they chose their local Marie Curie shop at 122 Drymen Road and hope their donation, which will be handed out during the 9.30am-5pm opening hours, will bring some early spring cheer.

With their daffodil donation Kris and Lisa are helping support the hunt for collectors for Marie Curie’s biggest annual fundraising campaign, the Great Daffodil Appeal.

In March, Scots are asked to donate an hour of their time to collect donations and encourage people to wear the charity’s daffodil pins.

This will help Marie Curie nurses to provide more free care to local people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and in the Marie Curie Hospice, Glasgow, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.

Shop Manager Margaret Earl said: “Kris and Lisa’s gesture is such a thoughtful gift. Their visit caused a lot of excitement from the customers, volunteers and staff and we were thrilled they chose to support us as their local hospice shop.

“If you’d like to join them in supporting the Bearsden shop, which raises money for the Marie Curie Hospice, Glasgow, we welcome donations of good quality clothes, accessories and household items.”
