Florist Andrea Williams is supporting City Hospice after losing her husband to COVID-19.
Andrea told us:
“I founded Daisychains of Sully 18 months after the loss of my wonderful husband to Covid-19. At the time I was working as the Head of Department at Cardiff and Vale College, Mark had worked in my department as a lecturer and I couldn’t begin to think of returning with him missing from there, I was still dealing with his loss at home. I knew I had to work but wanted to stay close to home, where I felt close to Mark so I decided to start a floristry business. I had created flowers for family weddings and funerals for the last 30 years and my plan was to start a florist once I retired, I just moved that forward.”
Daisychains of Sully is generously supporting City Hospice by offering 20% of profits from all floral tributes ordered by staff, patients, family and friends of the hospice.
“I remember the first ride-out on Mark’s motorbike resulted in me making a daisy chain and putting it on his head, hence the name, as I felt I wanted Mark to be part of my future journey.
As I am in Sully I am happy for anyone to collect orders but can only deliver to Cardiff on the weekends. That said, flowers for weddings or funeral tributes can be arranged to meet your specific dates and venues.”
Andrea offers consultations for weddings and funeral tributes at competitive rates. She will also be holding wreath-making classes and other events throughout the year, all of which will result in donating funds to City Hospice.
Fundraising Coordinator Lauren Guy said:
“We are so touched by Andrea’s lovely gesture to donate 20% of profits from her beautiful arrangements to the hospice. I’m particularly looking forward to her wreath making workshop later in the year too. Thank you so much for your wonderful support, Andrea.”
