This Year So Far
When lockdown struck, we realised there was a need to support our families more than ever, not go to ground.
Gift boxes with suitable toys and sweets were sent to every registered child whose family requested one. Sunflower growing packs were sent a few weeks later and Think2Speak crayons and colouring books were sent out another couple of weeks after that. A final round of lock-down gifts were kindly and very generously sponsored by an organisation called 'We Are All Making a Difference' who donated £5000!
Thanks to sponsorship, we have sent out over 80 wonderful gift boxes to deserving, brave and shielded children.
Despite the many obstacles we have faced this year, we still managed to provide our children with special parcels to help put smiles on their faces.

Santa's Special Christmas Party 2019 took place at Forest Pines Hotel - with around 200 guests and Santa joining us specially from Lapland! Lots of photos are available to view on our Facebook page and here is a short video of the party.
Although this year will be quite different, Santa's Virtual Christmas Party is going to be incredibly special.
Even through the difficult last few months, there has been some fantastic fund raising going on in aid of Sunflowers. Chris Sheasby, Nathaniel's triple Challenge, Shaun Ellis 10k run and Emily's sponsored haircut donation.
