‘Flower Power’ Brings Some Cheer

It’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good, so the team at Prince’s Park Garden Centre (PPGC) decided to bring a cheer to some local residents.

Hundreds of bunches of flowers were given away to the local people of Irlam and Cadishead and the elderly and vulnerable of the community by the staff, volunteers, members of management committee and their partner organisation Helping Hands.

Hundreds of bunches of flowers were given away to local residents, including the elderly and the most vulnerable in our community, by the staff, volunteers, members of PPGC management committee and their partner organisation Helping Hands.

Because of current COVID-19 outbreak, PPGC is not currently open to the public and a number of service users are self-isolating at home. Thousands of flowers were cut and made into bunches for the community to bring some colour and happiness into the lives of many people living in fear.Their partner organisation Helping Hands organised for their drivers to deliver these fresh and beautiful flowers to the front doors of many of their older and most vulnerable clients across Salford, totally free of charge.

Chair of PPGC Alec McFadden said, “So even the killer virus is helping to bring a degree of happiness into the lives of our older and most vulnerable people. Our partner organisation Helping Hands have delivered for free and direct to their doors some lovely bunches of flowers with the message ‘Stay home and stay safe’.”
