Some of our Year 3 children spent time with Father Smith today, planting new flowers and seeds around the ‘Daft As A Brush’ headquarters in Gosforth.

The founder of the charity, Brian Burnie, spent time with the children explaining what the volunteers of Daft As A Brush do and looked at the amazing work our hospitals carry out to support those undergoing cancer treatment. The children also explored the different types of seeds planted, how many and the reason behind the plants.

The charity, Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care, provides a free transport service to and from the Freeman/RVI Hospitals for outpatients undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiotherapy treatment – some from as far afield as the Scottish Borders, North Yorkshire and West Cumbria.
