Our Story

We deliver presentations about 'Why we set up Sunflowers'. This often has a powerful impact and enables individuals to open up in ways they have never been able to before. The presentations include some of the learning points established since Pete's death and the deep and devestating impact it has had on our family, Pete's friends and the wider community.
