Pink Tulips Flower at Cotswold Wildlife Park to Support UCARE, an Oxford-Based Charity

Feb 27 2019

One of the Highlights of a Late Spring-Time Visit to the Cotswold Wildlife Park is the Incredible Impact of Their Tulips.

Borders and planters in the Walled Garden, around the Manor House and throughout the Park are illuminated by over one hundred varieties of all different shapes and colour.

They hope one of the most striking will be a display of bright pink tulips in the borders in front of the Manor House.

On a bright November day in 2018, garden designer and TV presenter James Alexander Sinclair helped them plant 1000 pink Tulip “Caresse” bulbs, in aid of the charity UCARE, for which he is their Ambassador.

UCARE is an Oxford based charity dedicated to urology cancer research and education.  The pink tulip is the emblem of the charity and by buying and planting these bulbs the Wildlife Park is helping to support and raise awareness of UCARE’s work.

Also helping to plant the tulip bulbs were the Founder of the charity, Professor David Cranston, Keith and Betty Jamieson (Keith was a patient and is now a supporter of the charity) and Valerie Berry, UCARE’s Chief Executive.  Cotswold Wildlife Park look forward to welcoming them back here to see their handiwork in full bloom.
