    Weʼve raised £1,053 to plant daffodils in Merton Park

    Merton Park, London,UK
    Funded on Saturday, 1st October 2022

    Don't have time to donate right now?


    In 2021 approximately 80 local residents came together to brighten our neighbourhood by planting daffodils in the grass verges of Merton Park. The results seen in March 2022 were stunning as our 16,250 crocus and daffodil bulbs came to life. We'd like to continue this community driven initiative in 2022 and include more streets in Merton Park. This year we're having to find our own funds and have already received generous donations from the John Innes Society and Evolution Creations. If you live locally or have a local business and would like to support us then your donation would be gratefully received. All donations go towards buying bulbs that will be distributed across the streets that have asked to be involved.

      Many thanks to everyone who has donated so far. I will be placing orders for bulbs at the end of the week. This year our volunteers have asked for 19,250 bulbs which is even more than last year! I never thought we would inspire so many people to get involved with our community initiative so if you know anyone who would still like to contribute then they can still do so for the next few days. Every penny raised goes towards buying bulbs. Thanks so much to everyone for the donations and encouragement.

      Thanks so much to everyone who has donated so far - we're a smidgen away for being half way there! Please continue to spread the word amongst your friends and neighbours. Even if they don't want to, or are unable to get involved in planting, they can still donate if they wish. The attached picture was from Daybrook last year :-)

    Do you know anyone in need or maybe want to help a local community cause?

    Create you own page and donʼt let that cause go unfunded!
