Youngsters at a number of schools, nurseries and care homes in and around Cheadle are set to get green-fingered thanks to a supermarket.
Morrisons in Cheadle have taken part in the national store’s ‘Seeds of Hope’ initiative.
The scheme is offering free packs of Cornflower seeds in store and online – as well as to schools, nurseries and care homes – to “spread positivity and hope for the future.”
Community Champion at Cheadle’s Morrisons, Janet Calderhead, said: “Morrisons recently announced that packs of Cornflower seeds, that represent positivity and hope for the future, will be given away in every store nationwide.
“Shoppers will be able to get a free pack at the checkout and online whilst stocks last.
“Community Champions have also distributed packs amongst local schools, care homes and community groups too.”
Janet added: “Altogether six schools, four nurseries, and three care homes (around Cheadle) have received the packs from us.
“Each pack contains a seed journal, messages of hope to colour and write a message so to form chains, cornflower seed packs, gloves, compost, seed pots and markers.”
