While giving flowers is what we’re best at, this October we also aim to hand over a big donation to Breast Cancer Care – and there are plenty of ways for you to get involved…
We all know someone affected by breast cancer. Every 11 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with the disease. Nobody should have to deal with that alone – which is why for the past 4 years we’ve been proud supporters of Breast Cancer Care.
Breast Cancer Care offers emotional and practical support to people with breast cancer and their families – information sessions, get-togethers, or just an understanding ear when it’s needed most.
So far we’ve raised over £500,000, and with your help we’ll have another fantastic year of fundraising.
Ways to help
• Buy a Breast Cancer Care bouquet.
Send one of our Breast Cancer Care products to your special someone this October and we’ll donate 10% to Breast Cancer Care.
• Pick up a pin in store. Show the world you’re part of the fight against breast cancer with a Breast Cancer Care pin badge – on sale in loads of Interflora member stores. (You’ll know our stores by their fabulous window displays – read on for more!)
• Run a Pink Friday. All Fridays are great – but you can make one extra special with your own Breast Cancer Care fundraising event. For more about Pink Fridays, plus loads of fundraising ideas, head over to the Breast Cancer Care website
The In the Pink window competition
Throughout October, Interflora member stores will compete to create the shop window that’s prettiest in pink.
During our “In the Pink” competition last year we saw giant pink bras, baths of pink water, pink mannequins, balloons and more – and we can’t wait to see what’s in store for our judges this time around.
Here are just some of the best shop windows from last year:
The Flower Shop – Stonehouse
Wilscroft Florist in Leominster
Jackie Phillips Florist
Florilia Florist in Newport
