Blue Peter gardener Chris Collins brought the sun with him when he visited Windsor's hospice on Tuesday.
Chris visited Thames Hospice in Hatch Lane to launch its Sunflower Campaign.
He met children from Clewer Green Church of England First School, which is based in the same road as the hospice.
Chris, who is the hospice's schools ambassador, said: "The Thames Hospice Sunflower Schools Challenge is a great competition that simply asks budding artists to create a sunflower scene. Pupils can choose to use paints, pencils, crayons or even a computer, it doesn’t matter. The only criteria is the picture must include sunflowers.”
The winning school will receive £250 of vouchers for their school’s garden - as well as a visit by Chris.
The hospice's fund raising Sunflower Walk takes place on Saturday, June 28 in the Great Park at Virginia Water. Visit thameshospice.org.uk/sunflowerwalk or call 01753 842121 for details.
