The Commonwealth War Graves Foundation is excited to announce its latest commercial participator partnership (CPP) with Seeds4Bees.

The Foundation will receive 5% of the sales of Seeds4Bees’ Bee in Our Thoughts Poppy and Cornflower seed packs.

Poppies of course are a highly recognisable symbol of peace and remembrance in the UK. Cornflowers are also France’s remembrance flower, also known as “Bleuet de France”.

Together, we feel this pack resonates with the commemorative work we do at the Foundation to support the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.

Speaking on the partnership, Seeds4Bees said: “Seeds4Bees Ltd is a small family-run business created in 2020 to raise awareness of the uncertain plight of bees and other pollinators by selling poppy and other wildflower seeds along with a unique range of eco-friendly, nature-themed products.

“The Company has raised funds for Buglife and other wildlife charities as well as MIND, the NHS and most recently the Ukrainian Appeals of The Red Cross and UNICEF and is now pleased to support CWGF in their invaluable work.

“As a company, we pride ourselves on the quality of our products, attention to detail and personal service - we’re always happy to help our customers and, of course, our natural world!”

CWGF Managing Director John Grain said: “We are absolutely delighted to sign another CPP agreement. Seeds4Bees’ mission of preserving our environment and protecting wildlife is inspirational.

“The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is one of the world’s leading horticultural organisations. This exciting new partnership will allow the Foundation to continue to support their work, while also helping us protect our sites and the natural world.

“On behalf of the Foundation, I’d like to say a massive thanks to our new partners and we can’t wait to work with them. We are so grateful for this support as funds donated will go towards our mission to help keep the stories of the men and women we commemorate alive.”

More than half the 1,750 acres of land the Commonwealth War Graves Commission is given over to fine horticulture. Our carefully maintained sites feature a wide range of flowers and plants, attracting lots of different bee and insect species.

As well as being friendly visitors to our sites and our private gardens, bees are vitally important pollinators. Bees pollinate very large areas, influencing our food production as well as helping maintain habitats worldwide.

The Foundation, alongside the CWGC, has committed to new sustainability standards to help protect our environment for future generations and all animal species.
