Wear A Flower Week
Wear A Flower Week 2019 - 10th - 16th June
To celebrate British Flowers Week, we’re partnering with UK florists to raise awareness of the week and to fundraise to help us find a cure for brain tumours.
Last year, florists from Plymouth to Glasgow got involved. This year, we want more than ever to take part.
Sign up and we'll promote your shop to our supporters. Help your customers pick out the right flowers to wear during the week, and take donations on our behalf.
Wear A Flower Week is being supported by Danny Clarke (the BBC's The Instant Gardener). Danny's sister, Margot, died of a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain tumour at the age of 52.
We’re also delighted to have the support of our Member Charity, The Jane Packer Foundation, as well as all the fantastic florists and individuals across the country who are helping to fund the fight against brain tumours.

Our inspiration - Jane Packer
Jane Packer was an internationally renowned and pioneering florist whose life was sadly cut short by a brain tumour in 2011. She was busy revolutionising the world of floristry and raising a family when she was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour that turned out to be a glioblastoma grade 4.
Following gruelling treatment, Jane was able to return to work and live a normal life until a stroke six years later heralded the return of the tumour. After she passed away in 2011, her husband, Gary Wallis, set up The Jane Packer Foundation in her memory.
