Marie Curie and When You Wish partner for online tribute pages

Marie Curie Cancer Care and When You Wish Upon a Star, the charity that grants wishes to children with terminal illnesses, have teamed up with a UK website to create two online tribute pages.

Visitors to the Lasting Tribute website can go to a virtual daffodil field and dedicate a flower in memory of someone. Marie Curie will plant a real daffodil bulb in one of its UK Fields of Hope.

Alternatively, people wanting to name a star in memory of a child who has died can visit a virtual night sky created for the children's charity.

Each dedication costs the supporter £5, with half the donation going to the charity.

The partnership has been created to mark Marie Curie Cancer Care's 60th anniversary and 18 years of When You Wish Upon a Star.
