Over the last year, the needs of the children, young people, and adults who rely on us have become much more pronounced.

We need your help to continue to be able to respond to urgent needs in individuals and communities as they arise.

The Sunflower Appeal 2021 is an uplifting opportunity for everyone in our Chickenshed family to fundraise and get involved in a way that suits you.

As the sunflower leans towards the light and grows to extraordinary heights – so we can all feel inspired to grow our inclusive community together.


The sunflower is a flower that always looks towards the light - they are totally unique in that they have the ability to provide energy in the form of nourishment and vibrancy - attributes that mirror the sun and the energy provided by its heat and light.

The qualities of the sunflower resonate deeply with the qualities of the children, young people, and adults who benefit from our sustainable programmes.

In that spirit, we would love to encourage everyone in our community to take part in any of the following ways:

  • Take part in our Sunflower Growing Challenge! Get your friends and family to sponsor you & tag your flower pictures on social media @Chickenshed_Uk
  • Take part in our Sunflower Walk on 14 August
  • Do a challenge that is out of your comfort zone
  • Make a donation
  • Hold a fundraising event of any size

If you would like to get in touch to discuss your ideas, we would love to hear from you.
