A Berkhamsted flower shop has been sparking joy at a local hospice by delivering bunches of flowers to their inpatient unit.
Based at the heart of the Berkhamsted High Street, Hanako Flower Shop has been making flower donations to The Hospice of St Francis, using blooms that would have otherwise gone to waste as part of their ‘no flower left behind’ sustainability initiative.
Sharon, Head of IPU at The Hospice of St Francis, commented, ‘We were delighted to receive a delivery of beautiful bouquet donations from Hanako Flower Shop. We displayed them on our Inpatient Unit for our patients, their relatives and our staff to enjoy. Gestures like this really make our day and are greatly appreciated on the Unit.
‘Thank you so much for thinking of us and for your fantastic donation!’
The Hospice of St Francis is a charity that helps 2,000 local people and their families in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire live their precious lives well by improving symptoms, achieving personal goals, and helping them feel safe.
Kate Parrott, Head Florist at Hanako Flower Shop, commented, ‘We’re passionate about sharing joy and happiness through flowers, so there’s nothing we love more than creating and donating bouquets for the hospice.
‘As a sustainable florist, we’re always looking for new initiatives to ensure no flower goes to waste, and by sending bouquets to local causes, we’re ensuring any leftover flora continues to spark joy!’
Hanako Flower Shop is home to a beautiful array of flowers, along with a unique Florist’s Table and champagne bar around which guests can enjoy a glass of Moët while watching floristry in action while waiting for their bespoke arrangements to be handcrafted.
