Rotarian Margaret Morley said: “Schools nurture our young people and help them to grow, we hope the plants we present to them represents this.

"Sunflowers just radiate sunshine and hope for the future.”

The children were also given sunflower seeds to be planted in their Peace Garden.

Matthew Watson, Headteacher at Westgate Primary School, said: “Your gift was greatly appreciated and has brightened the approach to our school already.

"Three staff who join us to prepare meals all came and said what a lovely addition it had been, without knowing the story.

"I think they call that ‘instant impact’.

"Our Reception class wasted no time and have already planted the seeds.”
