Wear A Flower Week
Wear A Flower Week 15th - 21st June 2020
Created to run alongside British Flower Week, our floral fundraising campaign Wear A Flower Week is a great way to show your support for both British florists and of course the need for more research into brain tumours.
We're proud to partner with many florists who support us for Wear A Flower Week each year - look out for more news on our website and social media pages in the months and weeks leading up to the event.
Wear A Flower Week is supported by our ambassador Danny Clarke (aka the BBC's The Instant Gardener). Danny's sister, Margot, died of a glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain tumour at the age of 52.
If you manage a florist and you’d like your business to be promoted by taking part in Wear A Flower Week 2020, please register your interest today by contacting our Head of External Relations, Hugh Adams on email Hugh@braintumourresearch.org or phone on 07809 701229

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.
