Stamford primary schools receive seeds of hope from Morrisons
Schoolchildren have received a donation of sunflowers seeds from Morrisons in Stamford.
The supermarket chain is giving away 25 million packets of seeds to spread hope and lift people’s spirits.
St Georges’s Primary School and St Augustine’s Primary School are among those to take part.
The children will be able to watch the seeds grow into dwarf sunflowers measuring between six and 14 inches tall.
Morrisons spokesman David Potts said: “It has been a very difficult year and the winter seemed especially dark and tough.
“As spring arrives, and with covid seemingly in retreat, we want to celebrate the growing sense of national optimism by planting these sunflowers, representing the brighter and lighter times of hope ahead.”
