Volunteers needed to help plant daffodil 'field of hope' in Guiseley
11:52am Friday 28th September 2012 in News
Green fingered volunteers are being invited to help create a ‘field of hope’ in Guiseley by planting thousands of daffodils.
Events planned for September 30 and October 2 have been cancelled – but a new date for the bulb planting has been set for Sunday, November 4 at 10am. The Aireborough Support Group for Marie Curie Cancer Care and Guiseley in Bloom want as many people as possible to help them plant 2,000 daffodil bulbs in Springfield Park.
The project allows bulbs to be sponsored in memory of a loved one or simply to support Marie Curie nurses.
Guiseley and Rawdon councillor Paul Wadsworth said: “This is a terrific project and a hugely worthwhile cause.
“I hope that a great many local people will join us at Springfield Park on the new date of November 4 for the bulb planting.
“As well as brightening up the park with thousands of daffodils, the field of hope will serve as a tribute to the memory of loved ones and also support the excellent work of the Marie Curie nurses.”
