Gift of tulips will provide spring colour
Oxford based charity, UCARE, has provided Bridewell with 500 tulip bulbs. These are a brilliant pink tulips going by the name of Tulippa Caresse. Developed especially for the charity, they symbolise the UCARE logo.
UCARE, standing for Urology Cancer Research and Education, was set up 10 years ago to fund and support the best quality research and education in urological cancer. John Adams, our interim Chair of trustees was one of their founding members. 'This is another great example of a local charity doing great work to meet local needs. Their gift will be a harbinger of spring, a real delight to show that the days are getting longer and new life has just been waiting to burst forth from just under the ground'
Gifts in kind are very important to Bridewell - whether tools, plants or the timber that has been stored doing nothing in your garage for so long!
