Every year, when you see London in March, you will notice the wonderful daffodils that bloom. This time around, the crop is highly special owing to the fact that it was handcrafted to be put for a great cause. Known as ‘Garden of Light’, it is an interactive installation of art, illuminated and comprises of fabricated flowers that is carried out in collaboration with Marie Curie, a charity located in United Kingdom which aims to help terminally ill people.
There is a makeshift plot at Paternoster Square to feature the Garden of Light, where there are handmade daffodils that are used to depict that nurses bring light even in the darkest hours.
This project was executed as a part of the Great Daffodil Appeal, which is a fundraiser by Marie Curie that aims to raise donations by sporting daffodil pins. With this installation, they are hoping to appeal to the nurses who have been serving selflessly. Dr. Jane Collins, who is the CEO of Marie Curie, also said that they are hoping more people to join the cause and start wearing more daffodils. With this move, they are making every daffodil count!
