Mr Fothergill’s donates 30p from each packet to charity

Want to support Children in Need this year? Mr Fothergill’s has a partnership with the BBC to donate cash from two seed packets to raise cash for the charity.

If you buy a packet of Sunflower Pudsey or Pumpkin Pudsey (each costing £1.99), Mr Fothergill’s will donate 30p to BBC Children in Need, which takes place on Friday, November 16.

The 6ft+ annual sunflower is easy to grow and each plant has a huge flower head on a sturdy stem.

Pumpkin Pudsey is perfect for carving at Halloween and the sweet orange flesh tastes great in pies.

Safe, happy, secure childhood

Children in Need believes that every child in the UK should have a childhood which is safe, happy and secure and allows them the chance to reach their potential.

To help achieve this, it provides grants to projects which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged.

It supports 2,400 of these projects and since 1980, more than £800 million has been raised.

The seeds are available at major retailers nationwide and online at www.mr-fothergills.co.uk.
