There’s honestly nothing that puts a smile on my face more than fresh flowers. Whether it’s a special occasion or just your run-of-the-mill day flowers instantly cheer up even the gloomiest of moods.
Everyone has heard of the wonderful things that Cancer Research do; I always donate to them when I can and I’m a frequent visitor to their charity shops to raid their used books, but I honestly never knew they sold flowers.
Christmas is nigh and many family birthdays and holidays are approaching with the New Year. Sometimes, a bouquet of fresh flowers is the perfect gift for any loved one. Why not do a good deed in supporting Cancer Research UK when you order your flower delivery?
Cancer Research UK
As someone who has lost family members to cancer, I am well aware of the importance of Cancer Research UK. My Nan was diagnosed with Terminal Pancreatic Cancer back in 2010, and it was going through this trauma with my family that made me realize the importance of having the love and support of friends and family to cheer you up when you are down. Even though it might just be a small token, receiving flowers when you’re feeling low cheers you up and makes you realize how loved and supported you are. No matter how small the gesture.
Prestige Flowers have teamed up with Cancer Research UK to offer customers a range of gorgeous bouquets suitable for any occasion. With all bouquets exclusive to CRUK, a whopping 25% of the price of each bouquet goes to supporting the charity. This resulted in a colossal £11,000 being raised from sales last year alone! A fantastic achievement!
The gorgeous bouquet I was lucky enough to receive was named Joyous Horizon. It included a gorgeous mix of germinis, carnations, lily la orange (my fave!), chrysanthemums, and blue Statice. The beautiful mix of oranges, dusky pinks and purples is perfect for the Autumn months! It would also be wonderfully suited to Springtime too. Prices for this particular bouquet start from £30.00, and you can select larger sizes for a slight increase in price.
They came delivered in gorgeous white paper, and the box was extremely sturdy and suitable for transportation. The flowers arrived in perfect condition. They also offer free next day delivery on all bouquets – perfect for any last minute gifts. You can have it delivered directly to the recipient in time for any occasion.
When I received the bouquet the lilies weren’t in bloom, but opened within 3 to 4 days of delivery. They smelt absolutely divine! As someone obsessed with room fragrances and candles, their scent was better than any artificial product I could buy.
Prices start from £25, and you’ll be completely spoiled for choice with the range of flowers and colours available to you. Lilies are my moms favourite flower; there is quite a selection available through the website that I’ll be ordering for her next year for her birthday and Mother’s Day.
If flowers aren’t your thing, there are a range of alternative ideas you can order instead, including fruit baskets, pamper selection boxes and spa treats.
So if you are considering ordering a flower delivery for a loved one please consider placing your order through Cancer Research UK Flower Shop. Not only will they receive a gorgeous display of flowers, but you will also be supporting this wonderful cause.
