To celebrate British Flowers week
we asked our customers to nominate someone to receive a wonderful British Flower Posy! We wanted them to nominate someone special who really deserves a treat, never has time for themselves or has overcome some amazing difficulties.
Introducing Sue Trevethan - the winner of a Random Act of Floweriness!
We chose Sue because she is a truly selfless person who works so hard to help as many people as she can.
Sue was nominated by her friend Steph who said; "Sue works tirelessly as a volunteer CEO of the charity Hope Support Services which she set up in 2009. The charity has a ground breaking approach to supporting young people who have a family member with a life threatening illness. This year the charity received the Queens Award for Voluntary Service in recognition of the importance and effectiveness of their work. I would like to show my appreciation of Sue, who does not seek the limelight, rather enjoys seeing the young people flourish under the care provided by Hope Support Services. This bunch of flowers would be a huge thank you to Sue from myself and all the other families whose children have been nurtured by the charity she founded. I guarantee my son would not be studying at Oxford without their input. They have provided him with so much after I was given my terminal diagnosis. Thank you."
When we revealed Steph's nomination to Sue and told her she'd won Sue commented; "I don’t know what to say other than that I am deeply touched by the nomination and kind words from Steph – nothing like this has ever happened to me before! Thank you Steph for my nomination, and thank you Great British Florist for choosing me. Without sounding too gushing, I absolutely love flowers and am really looking forward to receiving them. Thank you once again."
Thanks to all of the people who nominated someone to win a Random Act of Kindness - we were inundated with truly amazing stories and people who deserve to have their day brightened, unfortunately we only have 10 posies to send - but we really appreciate the time taken to get involved and nominate someone.
Check back over the upcoming weeks to see the remaining winners!
