Oxfordshire towns support UCARE by planting tulip bulbs

Professional gardeners, volunteers and supporters have all been busy over the last few months planting our bulbs, so in the spring be sure to look out for seas of pink tulips as Oxfordshire towns and famous locations help us to celebrate our 10th anniversary.

Places to look out for them include Woodstock, Thame, Banbury, Bicester Village, All England Lawn Tennis Club (Wimbledon), Broughton Castle, Tythe Barn, Studley Wood Golf Club and Harewood Downs Golf Club.

If you have planted our tulips we would love to see your photographs and location, by using the Interactive UCARE tulip map or by sending to us via email, Facebook or Twitter.

We will update this page through the year.

Banbury Town Council is supporting UCARE by planting pink tulips in People’s Park.

Mike Hall, BTC’s recreation and amenities manager, said:

This council is delighted to work with UCARE to promote this important research.

Urological cancers – those of the kidney, prostate, bladder and testes – represent a fifth of all new cancers diagnosed each year.

In addition to helping with important medical research, the tulips are a magnificent and colourful display. We planted 2000 bulbs.
