Regular ‘Flowers …uncut’ readers will be aware of the good causes that ArenaFlowers.com occasionally works with by providing assistance and beautiful blooms and flower arrangements.
So when Help for Heroes, a new charity which aims to help wounded Servicemen and Women, contacted us, we were more than happy to oblige (and we’ve had a fun idea to try to help raise money for them too – see the bottom of the post for more info).
Bespoke table arrangements for their Summer Ball a couple of weeks ago consisted of an array of floral arrangements representing the charity’s brand colours of red, ivory, blue and navy. These included red roses, red gerberas, red tulips, alstromeria and asiatic lilies, as well as blue delphiniums, agapanthus, lisianthus, thistles and freesias.
All this with an additional candle added, representing the ivory detail, which you can see twinkling away in the image above.
Event organiser Tricia Nanovo contacted us to tell us how the ball went, commenting: “Your contribution meant a lot and made so much difference to the beauty of the event and the ambience of the evening.”
Help for Heroes was set up by Bryn Parry, a former Green Jacket Soldier. He was inspired to do something to help and support wounded soldiers after visiting Selly Oak Hospital and Headley Court Tri-service Rehabilitation Centre.
Supported by Chief of General Staff, General Sir Richard Dannatt and working closely with the Army Benevolent Fund, Help for Heroes’ first aim is to raise vital funds to build a new gym and full size swimming pool complex at Headley Court. The new facilities will help wounded soldiers with the long process of rehabilitation and recovery.
The event was a fabulous success with over £11,500 raised from the charity auction and raffle on the night – with a final total estimated to be at least £13,000.
