I volunteer one morning a week for a wonderful charity called Floral Angels.
Floral Angels was created in 2013 to recycle & reuse flowers from events, weddings & retailers that may otherwise end up in landfill. A team of volunteers make & deliver bouquets & arrangements to those in the community who would not normally receive flowers. In doing this they support the floral industry in reducing waste. Based at New Covent Garden Flower Market in London Floral Angels is run entirely by volunteers. Flowers are delivered to hospices, elderly care homes, shelters & many other deserving beneficiaries within the community. The charity is extremely well supported by many leading florists, event professionals & venues as well as major retailers.
If you would like to donate your event or wedding flowers to this wonderful charity after your special day please let me know & we can talk through how this would work.
