Can you help me fill our communities with Sunflower's as a gesture of support and to raise money for the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal?

In 2020, we put rainbows in our windows as a visual symbol of our support and thanks to the NHS. Now in the midst of war and a humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, I thought we could fill our communities with symbols of hope, compassion, solidarity and resistance to war by growing the national flower of Ukraine, the Sunflower. Imagine our villages & streets full of sunflowers!

Ukraine is the world leader in sunflower production

With this in mind, I've been busy making little envelopes containing 3 sunflower seeds for you to grow at home.

If you would like to make a minimum donation of £1 in return for your sunflower seeds please text me here. For those local to me, I'll have envelopes with me when I'm out and about and also at The Bothy in Delph.

I'm happy to post envelopes out to you if you are happy to cover the cost of postage and packaging.

Donations can also be made in person or via my Just Giving Page.

 

Please note that I have a limited number of sunflower seeds available.

Sunflowers can act as a symbol of resistance to war

Throughout Ukraine’s history, the flower has been used as a symbol of peace. In June 1996, to celebrate Ukraine giving up nuclear weapons, U.S., Russian and Ukrainian defence ministers planted sunflowers in a ceremony at southern Ukraine’s Pervomaysk missile base.
