During Spring, Children First Derby fundraiser, Sandra Harrison, came up with an internal fundraising competition to help raise money for the charity, at a time when many of our planned activities had been cancelled - helping to brighten everyone’s spirits.

Sunflower kits were sold to our team of volunteers and their friends and family, with a prize promised to whoever could grow the largest sunflower.

And we’re pleased to say that the results are in!

We’ll be holding an award presentation at Swarkestone Nursery and Garden Centre on Sat Aug 7th at 1pm to announce the winner and present the prize.

We’re thrilled to be joined by BBC Radio Derby Breakfast Presenter, Andy Twigge, (Twiggy) who will be presenting the prize. And we would like to thank both Andy and Swarkestone Nursery for their continued support of the charity, which is MUCH appreciated.

If you’re free on Sat 7th, please join us, it promises to be a lovely ‘sunny’ event.
