The Norfolk Hospice celebrates record-breaking tulip fundraiser
Thanks to the generosity of the general public an astonishing £21,525 has been raised in aid of The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House from Norfolk Tulips (Belmont Nurseries) and The Ffolkes’ Tulips for Tapping event.
The Ffolkes and tulip grower Mark Eves worked with The Norfolk Hospice to open the 21-acre tulip field in Hillington to the public.
The event, which was held from 28th April to 9th May, sold over 5,000 tickets and tulip enthusiasts travelled from as far as Cornwall and Newcastle to visit. The event garnered national interest after it featured on television programmes such as ITV Anglia News and This Morning.

The money raised will all go straight to the Hospice to support the care services they provide free of charge to local families.
The total is a record-breaking amount raised from any event supporting The Norfolk Hospice and over fifty volunteers gave their time to ensure that the event was a success.
