Join Radio 2's Big Bee Challenge!
A very special message from Zoe Ball...
Hello my blooming lovely friends, it's Zoe Ball here!
I wanted to share something really special that I’ve recently launched on my Radio 2 Breakfast Show, along with our pals at the RHS. I’m so excited, I’m positively buzzing about it…
It’s called Radio 2’s Big Bee Challenge – a brand new project, which will encourage our listeners to help create a better environment to support our bees and other pollinating insects.
Around the UK, bees and other insects are in decline - with some in danger of extinction. That’s why we’re asking our younger listeners to get involved by designing their very own bee-friendly garden that will attract our precious little pollinators. The winning design will then be built at an NHS Trust site, which is used, by children and young people with mental health needs. How un-bee-lievable is that!
We’d love for children, aged between 6 and 12 years old, to enter this new competition, by designing a garden that bees, and the patients, families and staff of the NHS Trust, will love. Let your imaginations run wild, we can wait to see what you come up with! The winner will not only see their garden built and buzzing with bees at our special opening party this August, live on Radio 2 but they’ll also take home an illustration of their design and a box of goodies.
All the information you need to enter the competition is here on the BBC Radio 2 website. And if you need some inspiration to get started, learn more about what our bees need here and the RHS Campaign for School Gardening has some more fun activities and ideas to help too!
We’ll also be asking everyone, of all ages to do one thing, no matter how large or small, to help support the bees, on our Big Bee Challenge Weekend, which will take place on Saturday 31 July and Sunday 1 August. You’ll also be able to learn more about our buzzing buddies in a brand new bee-loving podcast, which will be available on BBC Sounds later in July.
The best part of all this is that anyone can get involved! Whether you have a garden, a small backyard, a balcony, a window ledge or a doorstep - nowhere is too small to grow the plants and flowers that will entice our plant-loving pals to them.
I honestly feel so passionate about Radio 2’s Big Bee Challenge - it's already got me thinking about what I can do in my own garden!
