Beneficiaries from Children’s Cancer Foundation took part in a special tulip bulb planting session on the afternoon of 7 April.
The beneficiaries, aged seven to 23, and their families joined Gardens by the Bay staff and volunteers in putting the finishing touches to the floral display at the Flower Field, one day ahead of Tulipmania’s opening. After the special planting session, they were brought on a tour of the Gardens.
Said Ms Neo Lay Tin, Executive Director of CCF, “Tulips are among the first flowers to blossom after a long winter. As a herald of spring and given its association with new life and growth, the tulip is a symbol of resilience and hope for our young patients in their battle against cancer.”
Adding on, Ms Marziah Haji Omar, Assistant Director (Flower Field Design) at Gardens by the Bay said, “ While we appreciate the beauty of the blooms, what is even more meaningful is how they are a reminder of the courage and determination of children with cancer. We are glad to enable these children to try their hands at planting tulips, a flower that they hold close to their hearts.”
Tulipmania opens 8 April and runs till 22 May.
