Show Winning Sunflower Raising Money for Cancer

Apr 23, 2019 Craft Produce & Art

Julia Allen's giant sunflower won first prize in its class at last year's Ashbourne Show.

It has now produced more than 5,000 seeds which are bening sold off to benefit the skin cancer charity SCKIN.

Just weeks after her prize bloom won at Ashbourne Show, a mole on Julia's arm was diagnosed as being a melanoma.

Thankfully, it was coaught early and has been successfully treated but Julia wanted to raise money for the charity as well raising awareness of the disease.
