Plant a Seed for Research

Plant a Seed for research returns for 2021! Previously you might remember we have launched this during Awareness Week but we were aware that February was not a plantingplant-a-seed month. So we have decided to move this to April so that you can get sowing…

Kidney Cancer UK and Kidney Cancer Scotland continue to support research projects and one in particular has been a national kidney cancer screening programme and we ask you for your support by joining in our ‘Plant a seed for research’ campaign. For a minimum donation of £5.00 we will send you a pack of sunflower seeds to plant from which hope and new life will grow through the research we support. Sunflowers show signs of adoration, loyalty and strength and as a charity our team have shown incredible resilience to ensure longevity and the continuation of support that we provide to patients, their carers and family members to reduce the harm caused by kidney cancer.

Sunflowers are usually sown between mid-April and end of May and flower in August, so donate now and receive your seeds in perfect time to start planting.


Why not make a donation but send the seeds to a grandchild who might enjoy planting?

100% of the profit from your donation will go to research into kidney cancer.

You can join in ‘Plant a seed for research’ by clicking HERE.

Once your seeds start to bloom in the summer you can share pictures of your lovely flowers via our Facebook page.

In 2020, we saw some fabulous sunflowers…


We would like to thank Thomson & Morgan who have kindly donated the sunflower seeds to us to support this campaign
