Shadwell in Bloom relies on sponsorship for a large part of its funding, but recognises that not everyone can afford to sponsor a flower bed or hanging basket. Again this year we have in place 'Friends of Shadwell in Bloom' to enable anyone to show their support by making a small contribution. In return we will acknowledge your contribution and use the money towards our seasonal planting projects and let you know how the funds have been spent.

To become a Friend of Shadwell in Bloom please use the form and return envelope distributed early in the year to each household or the alternative donation route available via internet banking direct to the SIB account (details below). You can also get forms from Shadwell Post Office or download via the link as available below. If you still have queries then contact our FOSIB Secretary Anne Horne on 0113 2737436, email her at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Individual and group sponsors of hanging baskets will still be most welcome and like all donors will automatically become a Friend of Shadwell in Bloom. In 2021 note that we suggest use of internet banking to add to the donation receipts during the pandemic. All receipts will be identified and the donors thanked for their participation.The FOSIB 2021 form will become delivered in April and is also available via the link .
