We’re supporting the National Day of Reflection, 23rd March 2022
WHAT IS THE NATIONAL DAY OF REFLECTION?
Founded by a group of over 60 charities and organisations, the National Day of Reflection marks two years since the first UK lockdown. In that time so many lives have been cut short and millions have faced grief and bereavement.
The National Day of Reflection is a chance for us all to come together to offer support to each other, to reflect on loss, and to hope for brighter days. It’s a day set aside to remember all those we’ve lost in the pandemic, and to send strength and support to those who might be grieving.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED?
TAKE A MINUTE TO REFLECT
There will be a minute’s silence at 12 noon on 23 March. It’s a chance to reflect on the last year and those who have passed away, and a moment to stand in solidarity with people coping with grief.
SHARE HOPE AND SUPPORT WITH FLOWERS
The National Day of Reflection is not only about grief; it is also about hope and celebration. : Together we can celebrate the amazing lives and achievements of those we’ve lost, and also as well as taking the time to look forward to brighter days ahead.
Here are a few ways you could use them to mark the day:
SEND AN UPLIFTING BUNCH
Show your support for someone who’s grieving or send a pick me up to a frontline worker. A bunch of cheerful spring blooms, potted or cut, are a way we can connect and be together. As the official supplier of flower power for the day, we’d be more than happy to help you send something special.
let us introduce ourselves...
We started out in Jersey – that little island between England and France. In 1981 some clever holidaymakers swapped sending postcards for sending carnations. A burst of beauty by post, they were a great value way to send love to family and friends back home.
It was the start of something special. 30 years on we’ve delivered over 10 million beautiful bunches of all sorts of blooms (although we still have a soft spot for carnations!) and we’re rated excellent on TrustPilot.
These days we’re focused on doing good wherever we can, that’s why when Marie Curie asked us to be their official online flower partner for the National Day of Reflection, we jumped at the chance.
