QC Blog Kathy Kirkham

Today’s blog features Kathy Kirkham, Deputy Coordinator at Queenscourt at Home, who has been a busy bee launching her own fundraising campaign for Queenscourt during Covid-19.

Kathy and husband David, have so far raised over £690 by selling Giant Mongolian sunflower seeds. They cost just £2.50 a pack and can be delivered for an extra 65p

In a nod to Queenscourt’s mascot, Queenie, and to all the bees who will enjoy and benefit from the sunflowers - Kathy has named her venture Save the Bees.

She said: “I am so pleased this venture has taken off. People are really enjoying their gardens during lockdown and the sunflowers will add a splash of colour to everyone’s outdoor space. Not only that - the bees will thrive too. 

“People are holding competitions within their families as to who grows the tallest sunflower. They are also purchasing seeds to send across the country to their families. My mum is having a sunflower competition with her friends that live nearby.”

The seeds have also been a huge hit with children with Save the Bees offering an alternative activity for families. Kathy and David have even uploaded a sunflower picture on Facebook, which people can download for their children to colour in.

Packets of seeds are still available via www.facebook.com/donate/593745204824541/
