Plant flower in hope field

Have your say

ROTHERHAM residents are being invited as part of a charity campaign to plant a flower in memory of a loved one lost to cancer.

The local fundraising branch of Marie Curie Cancer Care has organised the Fields of Hope initiative, which will ask people to sponsor a daffodil to be planted in honour of someone who has died.

A site in Clifton Park has been provided by Rotherham Council and bulbs will be donated by Wentworth Garden Centre, Spalding UK and the park.

The flowers will be planted in the autumn by charity volunteers, before a sign is unveiled at the plot and a memory book installed in the Garden Room within the park.

Along with sponsorship, the group is also appealing for sponsorship towards the event - particularly to fund a good quality bulb planter.

For more information email secretary Rita Harris at or call the charity’s fundraising office on 0114 279 3010.
