The charity has created its very own daisy chain by planting ceramic daisies in the grounds of Beverley Minster.  Together with volunteers the Chairman of the Charity, Professor Nick Stafford, along with fellow Trustee, Karen Guest, created the pattern last week.

Money raised from the sale of these daisies will go towards the construction of a £7.2 million Molecular Imaging Research Centre construction of which is due to start shortly at Castle Hill Hospital.  This new facility will be sited adjacent to The Jack Brignall PET-CT Scanning Centre which was opened in 2014.  The centre will be a unique, state-of-the-art facility which will develop new radiotracers for use in cancer, cardiovascular and dementia imaging.

Your daisy can be ordered/obtained from;

  • The Daisy Building, Castle Hill Hospital, Cottingham HU16 5JQ
  • Guest & Philips, 23-25 Saturday Market, Beverley HU17 8BB
  • Bonus Electrical, Grange Park Lane, Willerby HU10 6EB

Please note that the display will remain in the grounds during the months of August and September.

Daisies cost £15.00, however, if you wish to have them posted there will be an additional cost of £4.00 to cover postage and packaging.

The daisies were inspired by the handmade ceramic poppy installations and were created by local potter, Mark Teale of Wentworth Pottery, Aldbrough.
