Green Fingers In The Park

Hundreds of school children planted 60,000 daffodil bulbs along the Serpentine in Hyde Park this week in an environmental initiative funded by our pupils and parents at Francis Holland, Sloane Square.

Mrs Lucy Elphinstone, Headmistress of Francis Holland School, Sloane Square said: “Parents, pupils and friends of Francis Holland School all caught the vision of creating a legacy for London, raising £35,000 in just a few weeks of energetic fund-raising to ensure Hyde Park is once again full of daffodils, the School’s emblem.  We are proud to have given something back to this amazing city and to have enabled other children to learn about the wonders of nature.”

Our fundraising efforts (including cake sales, sponsored runs, and sponsored walks) have allowed the Royal Parks Foundation to invite other schools (including St Barnabas, Millbank and Hampden Gurney, plus Frank Barnes School for Deaf Children), to take part in Daffodil Week and to experience the magical educational experiences connecting children with nature, as well as creating a swathe of yellow for many years to come along the banks of the Serpentine.
