Weʼre raising £100 to Grow Gold in Waldridge

Waldridge, Chester le Street, UK

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


Campaigners raising awareness of childhood illness from cancer are urging the gardening public to back them by creating displays of yellow and gold late-summer flowers. Grow Gold is a new initiative from Glow Gold, a campaign launched in 2016.

The group is lobbying government and health bodies to improve the profile of the disease and the critical need for early detection and, by founding September as the awareness month, encouraging the nation to wear or display yellow or gold.

Among venues taking part are Earl Spencer’s Althorp Estate in Northamptonshire, Crystal Palace Park in London and Princess Street Gardens in Edinburgh.

Waldridge in Bloom is supporting the campaign by planting the parish gold in September!

We are asking our residents to donate a pound or two to help us create something magical and draw attention to this worthy cause.

Let us choose a suitable flower for you or let us know which of the following you’d like us to purchase with your donation :

Argyranthemum (jamaica primrose), Clematis tangutica, Coreopsis verticillata (grandiflora), Cosmos (xanthos), Dahlia (kelvin floodlight), Rudbekia (goldsturm), Rudbekia laciniata, Solidago (goldenmosa), Sunflowers or Zinnia Zahara Yellow.

You can find out more about the Glow Gold campaign here:

Any money raised beyond what we spend on flowers will be donated to North of England Children’s Cancer Research. The NECCR is a North East children’s charity formed in 1979 by a small group of parents whose lives had been changed forever by childhood cancer. You can find out more about this charity here:
