It would be an understatement to say the past year has been testing on us all, none more so than the hard working hospital staff across the country who have battled Covid-19 from the front line on top of their usual duties.
Together with Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust, Scotsdales will be handing out 6 thousand daffodil bunches to each of the nurses, doctors and other Addenbrooke’s staff as a “thank you” on Tuesday 23rd March, marking the 1 year anniversary of the day the nation went into it’s very first lock down.
One thing that has really shone out from the difficult year, is the value plants and gardening holds for maintaining wellbeing. All the more reason for us to be excited to have this opportunity to hand out the daffodils, a symbol of new beginnings and positivity, all things we welcome for 2021.
Being a part of this charitable initiative shows the resilience of our UK growers that in spite of the difficulties the horticultural world has faced over the past year with Covid-19 halting plant production, daffodils are still being grown in the UK, enabling us to gift the many beautiful bunches to Addenbrooke’s staff.
On the day two representatives from Scotsdales supported Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trusts volunteers to hand out the daffodils on the day, thanking the staff face to face on behalf of everyone at Scotsdales and the Scotsdales Charitable Foundation.
We’d also like to thank Steve Ward for the use of his cold store to ensure the 6 thousand daffodils can arrive to Addenbrooke’s in perfect condition for the staff to enjoy.
