☀️ My 2.6 Sunflower Challenge! 🌻

🌻 The 2.6 Sunflower challenge 🌻


As there is no London marathon this year in the UK due to the COVID19 lockdown many charities across the UK have decided to hold the 2.6 challenge to raise much needed funds.

The challenge celebrates the 26 miles that would have been covered by runners in the London marathon on the 26th April this year and I’ve decided to participate to support the amazing work of World Cancer Research Fund by planting 26 sunflower seeds. I’m hoping to grow 26 giant sunflowers to a staggering height of 2.6 metres each…. I will actually be happy if I manage to grow one over 2.6 feet with my unpredictable gardening skills… so this really is a challenge for me.

I will donate £26 to start the event (£1 per sunflower) and ask if you would like to join me by sponsoring a sunflower for yourself and naming it – I will add a label with your chosen name to your sunflower and will give weekly video updates so you can see just how quickly your sunflower is growing.

The first one to reach 2.6 metres will get a special prize… and remember all your kind donations will be going to support World Cancer Research Fund, who fund cancer prevention research to help more people live cancer free lives.

If you’d like to be part of my challenge and have your own sunflower, please click or scan the QR code below and let me know what name you want to give your sunflower in the message box, along with the donation you’d like to make 

Together we can grow cancer prevention awareness….. and sunflowers! 🌻

  1. Hi Sarah, I’m in! I hope you have more success than I’ve ever had with Sunflowers. Mine grow, but I’ve never had any reach a great height. I’ll be cheering them on! 😀

    1. Thanks so much Lesley. I have bought what are called ‘giant sunflower’ seeds and am going to do my very best to grow them as tall as I can because, like you, I have never managed to get them big enough before….. this time I have a much greater incentive to get them up to 2.6m and beyond. And with the great names chosen so far they can’t be small sunflowers. Thanks so much for being part of my challenge…. it’s for a cause very close to my heart as I lost my step father last year to cancer and work for this very hard working charity that does amazing research into cancer prevention and survival.

      1. I’m sorry about your stepdad, Sarah. Losing someone under these tragic circumstances is horrendous. I thank God for your good, loving heart. x
