We aim to reduce waste in the flower market by working with retailers, florists and suppliers to turn end of shelf life flowers into beautiful arrangements. In addition, we receive and restyle beautiful wedding and event flowers that will be discarded at the end of a day. The arrangements are made by young offenders who are looking to change their lives and improve their career prospects. These arrangements are then delivered to care homes, day facilities and community buildings for all to enjoy.
"I chose The Flower Bank to create the wreaths because Ursula demonstrates ingenuity in how she sources and uses the materials for the job, such as the flowers. Ursula listened to what I wanted and worked successfully to produce something that was pleasing to see. I would highly recommend The Flower Bank and Ursula's services."
To provide skills and improve the life chances of vulnerable and disadvantaged in our community and provide low-cost floral arrangements and wreaths in times of distress.
To create local employment and invest in our community. Working with volunteers and young offenders to donate restyled flowers to care homes and community spaces locally.
