The sun is coming out and flowers are blooming, so it's time to get summery for Wear A Flower Week 2019.
Buy a flower, take a selfie or organise a dress down day, there are so many ways to have fun while raising funds for our cause.

Our inspiration - Jane Packer
Jane Packer was an internationally renowned and pioneering florist whose life was sadly cut short by a brain tumour in 2011. She was busy revolutionising the world of floristry and raising a family when she was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour that turned out to be a glioblastoma grade 4.
Following gruelling treatment, Jane was able to return to work and live a normal life until a stroke six years later heralded the return of the tumour. After she passed away in 2011, her husband, Gary Wallis, set up The Jane Packer Foundation in her memory.
