Frontline Flowers – Delivering posies of joy to the people putting their health on the line for the rest of us.
You can nominate a specific frontline worker, or you can sponsor a posy to be delivered to someone on our nomination list. We then co-ordinate with our local growers and wholesalers who donate or sell their unsold blooms to the program at a reduced cost; we then process and wrap the donated flowers and deliver them to the Frontline Flowers recipient. A posy costs $25, which covers the safe delivery of the posies to their recipients and helps supplement the cost of the flowers. All other labour and product costs are donated by participating suppliers and vendors.
A lovely gift of thanks – simply click on the name in pink to find out more and / or order!
