The Salvation Army’s work is set to bloom this Christmas

A special charity bouquet has been created by internet retailer Flying Flowers to help fund the International organisation’s projects to support the homeless, families struggling to cope, the elderly or lonely and individuals who want to overcome addictions.

Major Ray Irving, Territorial Social Services Secretary said: “The Salvation Army has a long history of offering practical support to people who are vulnerable or in need and we are needed this Christmas more than ever.

“We rely on the generosity of others and are so grateful to Flying Flowers for creating a special charity Christmas bouquet. This means that people can buy festive flowers for that special someone whilst helping us help others.”

Two pounds from the sale of each Salvation Army Charity Bouquet, priced at £25.99 will go directly to the charity. The stunning display features scented red Freesia, red Roses, Ming Fern and festive Gold Beargrass.

Last year the flower company – which celebrated 30 years in business earlier this year – raised over £7,000 on behalf of charity from sales of its Christmas bouquet.

Tom Barker, Flying Flowers’ Brand Manager, added: “We love this time of year, when we can really spoil our loved ones. But it’s even better when you know you’re doing your bit for charity, too. That’s why our experts have created the stunning Salvation Army Charity Bouquet, as it’s a charity that’s close to our – and our customers’ – hearts. Hopefully we can raise just as much, if not more, than we did last year for such a worthy cause.”
