Cecil Gowing Infant School – Marie Curie Daffodil Bulb Planting
Daffodil Bulb Planting.
Twelve children, aged four to seven, from Cecil Gowing Infant School in Norwich, planted 24 daffodil bulbs at the hotel today to help raise money for Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal. The children also decorated pots and then planted their own daffodil bulb to take home.
We are inviting people to sponsor a daffodil bulb for £15, with the money going to Marie Curie. To aid identification each child also added name sticks next to their bulbs.
The person who sponsors the first daffodil to bloom will win an evening for two in the hotel’s Wine Press restaurant, enjoying the new seven-course Inspiration Menu. There will also be a prize for the child who planted the daffodil.
Marie Curie in Norfolk is the Maids Head’s charity for 2017. To sponsor a daffodil bulb t. 01603 272008 or email [email protected].
Eloise Moore, teacher at Cecil Gowing Infant School said: “All the children take part in outdoor learning once a week in mixed age groups, either at the school or out in the community. We were really pleased to return to the Maids Head, after working with the hotel on our wedding event last year. The children learn about different charities, so this has been an excellent opportunity to introduce them to Marie Curie and also for them to visit a city hotel.”
Hugo Stevenson, Community Fundraiser, Marie Curie Norfolk said: “Marie Curie is delighted that the Maids Head has chosen to support us as their charity of the year in 2017. It was lovely that some of the children from Cecil Gowing Infant School were at the hotel today planting daffodils. It is very good that young children are involved in fundraising and learning that it is fun, as they are the fundraisers of the future. Together we can build a better community in Norfolk.”
Linzi Rawson, Sales Manager, Maids Head Hotel said: “We really enjoyed welcoming back the children and teachers from Cecil Gowing Infant School, as they helped us launch our fundraising year. We will be keeping a close eye on the daffodil bulbs as they grow in the planters in our courtyard. There will be several events in aid of Marie Curie during the course of 2017 and individual members of staff will also be organising their own fundraising projects.”
