Prestige Flowers, which has supported Barnardo’s since 2012, has vowed to continue raising money by creating a special range of bouquets in honour of the charity. For every order made through a dedicated website, www.barnardosflowers.org.uk, Prestige Flowers will donate 25% of the overall order cost to Barnardo’s, which supports more than 301,000 children, young people, parents and carers.
As part of the celebrations for the rejuvenated website and special bouquets, Prestige Flowers also organised a special flower arranging session in Barnardo’s Listerhills office in Bradford for the families, young people and children it works with in the city.
The day was a fun and informative workshop involving 20 adults, children and young people learning about the different origins and species of flowers, as well as the art and skill of arranging flowers. The participants got take their bouquets home after they had made them.
Barnardo’s Chief Executive Javed Khan said: “We are really grateful for the continued support from Prestige Flowers. We hope this partnership will raise lots of money towards our vital services which support hundreds of thousands of children, young people, parents and carers across the UK every year. On behalf of those children and young people we would like to say a massive thank you to the staff at Prestige and their customers.”
Cath Ormerod from Barnardo’s in Bradford, commented: “We were delighted when Prestige said they’d like to arrange a special flower arranging session with our families. It was a lovely day – people really enjoyed themselves and the results were absolutely beautiful.”
Philip Crowther, Business Development Manager at Prestige Flowers added: “The Flower Workshop was an incredible event and extremely rewarding. We’re really passionate here at Prestige Gifting to work with charities like Barnardos, creating events and opportunities like the Flower Workshop.
