Link Age Southwark has launched its Bloomin’ Lovely Summer Appeal to raise £6,000 so it can deliver plants and flowers to isolated, older people across the borough.
The charity first started the floral doorstep deliveries during lockdown and, after having such a delighted response from OAPs, has decided to make the campaign an annual appeal.
Chief executive Sophie Wellings said: “This was such a lovely project for us to work on during a very challenging time for our service users.
“So many of us found sanctuary in nature during the periods of lockdown, the plants and flowers we delivered were a simple but tangible pleasure.
“Our aim was to bring colour and charm to service users’ lives and we hope to do the same again this year.”
The appeal will run until Monday, August 23. Anyone who donates can also leave a message which will be included with the gift.
