Statue of seated man surrounded by flowers

Flowers for Turing is back! This wonderful fundraising initiative on Friday 23 June comes courtesy of our fantastic Ambassador friend Joe Reddington who, with the help of friends, has laid flowers at the statue in Manchester of the pioneering scientist and WWII codebreaker Alan Turing on his birthday every year since 2013 in support of SpecialEffect.

People from all over the world make donations that cover a bunch of flowers and a gift towards our work helping people with physical disabilities to experience a better quality of life through technology.

This unique and lovely gesture has raised well over £12,000 since the initiative started, so huge, huge thanks to Joe and everyone involved – this really is such an amazing tribute!
