Local ceramic artist, Helen Ratcliffe, inspired by the poetry of Wordsworth and his celebration of the daffodils on the shores of Ullswater, initiated this project to raise £300,000 for six deserving charities and the target has been reached.
The aim of the project was to support smaller charities who don’t receive significant exposure or funds. These charities were carefully chosen to reflect the overall aims of the project, covering all aspects of social needs, environment, history and arts.
All proceeds from the remaining daffodils will go to support Another Way’s work.
Individuals and businesses have been wonderful in sponsoring and supporting the project and you can see who helped on out supporters page.
The labour involved was all through volunteers and Helen is not being paid for the project. Any surplus materials and equipment after the production e.g. clay, glaze, slab roller, glaze mixer etc, was donated to local schools and community groups.
Thank you to all our lovely supporters so far.
