Berkhamsted florist helps spread bouquets of joy by donating flowers
A Berkhamsted florist has helped spread bouquets of joy by delivering flowers to a local hospice.
Hanako Flower Shop, based on the High Street, donated the bouquets to the Hospice of St Francis, using flowers that would otherwise have been wasted as part of their ‘No Flower Left Behind’ sustainability initiative.
Sharon, Head of IPU at Hospice of St Francis, said: “We were delighted to receive a delivery of beautiful bouquets from Hanako Flower Shop. We have posted them in our inpatient unit for our patients, their families and our staff to enjoy. Gestures like this really make our day and are greatly appreciated within the Unit.
“Thank you so much for thinking of us and for your fantastic donation!”
The Hospice of St Francis is a charity helping 2,000 people and their families in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire to live their precious lives well by improving symptoms, achieving personal goals and helping them feel safe.
Kate Parrott, Chief Florist at Hanako Flower Shop, said: “We are passionate about sharing joy and happiness through flowers, so there is nothing we love more than creating and giving bouquets for the hospice.
“As a sustainable florist, we are always on the lookout for new initiatives to ensure that no flowers go to waste, and by sending bouquets to local causes, we ensure that any remaining flora continues to bring joy. !”
