Growing in the Community is a new initiative launched in 2019 by SPAR and Marie Curie. Where local participating SPAR stores* will be selling Daffodil bulbs in store, with 10p from every sale going to Marie Curie. *(Please check with your local SPAR if they're selling bulbs.)
SPAR and Marie Curie have also given packs of Daffodil bulbs and Education packs to a select number of schools across the UK. The aim is to create a fun activity for children but also give them the opportunity to learn about gardening and plants. They will plant their bulbs in Autumn and watch them flower in Spring, just in time for the Great Daffodil Appeal. This also gives them the opportunity to learn about Marie Curie and all the fantastic things they do.
If you're a teacher and would like the education pack for your class, please email SPARUK@mariecurie.org.uk.
