Patient Jackie Kennedy with sunflowers as part of Petals of Purple 2018 campaign

Petals of Purple

Hi, I’m Jackie and I wanted to let you know that Compton Care’s colourful sunflowers are back and set to bloom this spring.

I’ve been receiving support from Compton since January 2017. I visit the Compton Day Therapies Centre every Thursday and honestly, it’s changed my life! The staff at Compton have a way of making you feel like there is nothing wrong with you. Yes I am terminal, but that isn’t how I feel. I wake up in the morning, and I feel like I can take on the day. That’s because of Compton.

Last summer, one of the highlights of my weekly visit to the centre was to see hundreds of sparkling sunflowers spread across the lawns. They were so beautiful to see and were a real talking point.

I’m very excited to let you know that these shimmering sunflowers will be back once more and this time with colourful petals of purple.

The display itself will be in bloom for 3 weeks from 7 – 28 June 2018 in the Compton Hall grounds, so do come and take a look.Afterwards, in return for a suggested donation of £20 – which would fund the equivalent of purchasing materials for an arts and crafts session for someone visiting the Compton Day Therapies Centre – you can take one of these beautiful ornaments home to put in your own garden.


Ways to get involved:

Order your own

For a suggested donation of £20, you can order your very own purple sunflower. Purchase yours in memory of a loved one or simply as an eye-catching feature for your garden. You can order sunflower online today simply by completing this form.

Sponsor for others

If you’re not looking to take a Sunflower home this year, perhaps you’ll be able to sponsor this year’s display in support of those currently accessing our services by making a donation of your choice. If you'd like to be a sponsor, complete this form.
