Celebrating an Incredible 65 Roses Day 2024: Thank You for Your Support

65 Roses Day 2024 was filled with inspiring moments, thanks to the dedication and hard work of our amazing supporters. We’re thrilled to share that a record number of roses were wrapped, bouquets sold and virtual roses planted. Over the coming weeks, funds raised from the event will be collected and we look forward to sharing a final figure with you. We couldn’t have done it without you! Your overwhelming support, generosity, and enthusiasm have made this event an incredible success, and we are deeply grateful.

Community, Volunteers and Supporters

Thank you to the hundreds of community members, volunteers and supporters who joined us throughout the week. Each year, we are blown away by the support of our CF community, wider community and the local organisations that are ready and willing to lend a hand in any way possible. Whether you donated, volunteered, spread the word, or sold roses in the community, your involvement made a huge difference. Your efforts have not only helped us reach our fundraising goals but have also raised awareness about the important work we do.

Thank you to Wafex, our principal partner, for supporting the work we do for over 16 years. In this time, Wafex has sourced and supplied us with close to 150,000 roses.
