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.
We will update this page through the year.
An amazing display at The Cotswold Wildlife Park
4th May 2019
I didn’t quite know what I was expecting when I returned to catch up on the 1000 UCARE tulip bulbs planted in November at The Cotswold Wildlife Park.
The walled garden was just amazing. Alive with pink and blue, our charity colours. We know we have a very special and unique tulip bulb in Tulipa Caresse, but to be given the opportunity to have so many grown in one place, gives us, and the public, the chance to see their true beauty; and to raise awareness for the charity work we do.
When you buy the UCARE Tulip you are not just enhancing your gardens, you are also buying a symbol of hope, time and a brighter future for people with urological cancer.
A massive thanks again to Reggie Heyworth and everyone at The Cotswold Wildlife Park in supporting us and for taking the time to plant 1000 bulbs!
Pictured are Reggie Heyworth, Mandy, Valerie, Chris and Tim. Mandy and Chris are part of the garden team run by Tim. The park is run by Reggie and was started by his late Father.

Outside the Old Road Campus Research Building on the Churchill Hospital site there are UCARE tulips flowering - so right considering the cancer research undertaken there and our charitable object of funding urological cancer research.
Planting of bulbs at the The Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens
9th November 2018
On Friday 9th November UCARE Ambassador James Alexander-Sinclair helped to plant 1000 UCARE tulip bulbs at a special event at The Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens with the help of UCARE founder and Trustee Professor David Cranston, UCARE CEO Valerie Berry and Keith and Betty Jamison.
Tulip season is a highlight of the Gardens calendar here and it is a great privilege for us to be able to support UCARE in this way.
I'm sure our visitors will enjoy what will be a wonderful display, and we hope they will also learn more about this charity’s vital work.
Look out for the tulips if you are visiting next spring, in the beautiful walled garden.

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.
