The Camberley Fundraising Group for Marie Curie Cancer Care launches their Fields of Hope for Surrey Heath, this Saturday (7 March) at The Mall, Camberley. The Group will have an information stand outside House of Fraser/Love Coffee throughout the day, whilst a team of collectors will be in and around Camberley as part of the annual Great Daffodil Appeal (look out for the hats!)
The Group will work with Surrey Heath Borough Council’s Greenspace Team in Frimley Lodge Park and St Anne’s Church in Bagshot, to plant a ‘Field of Hope’ at each location. The project will see a swathe of daffodil bulbs planted this Autumn, ready to flower in Spring 2016 and the public are being invited to get involved and sponsor a ‘bunch of bulbs’ in return for a £5 donation, or a larger number for £20.
Sharon Carter, Chair of the Camberley Fundraising Group said: “We are thrilled to have been offered two sites in Surrey Heath for our daffodils to be planted and hope that both sites will offer an opportunity for everyone to get involved and perhaps to use their donation as a way to remember a loved one – we can’t wait to get planting”.
The site within Frimley Lodge Park will be close to the existing Memory Tree reflective area, whilst the grounds surrounding St Anne’s Church in Bagshot, which doesn’t have a graveyard, will provide a beautifully tranquil location for the second daffodil display.
