June 14 - 18 is Loneliness Awareness Week, a fabulous campaign, organised by Bristol based Marmalade
Trust, and designed to highlight the issue of loneliness; something that has seen a serious rise because of the pandemic
and resulted in even more unhappy people.
is designed to encourage florists to take the Lonely Bouquet concept and extend it throughout Loneliness Awareness Week to
both bring a smile to more people's faces and promote the amazing work of The Marmalade Trust. If you want to make
a double whammy of it you could make the posies with British Flowers and link in with that as well.
Direct2Florist are sponsoring and supporting this campaign, and because
they want this to work for the industry as a whole D2F are asking all florists to get involved.
There is a space at the bottom of the tag for you to add your business name after the words, "Prepared with
care and warmth by "
You promote the fact
you are taking part via all the channels you can to say you are leaving Lonely Bouquets around your area and why .... you
can get all the background info by emailing The Florist Magazine
at email@example.com for a project pack.
"This is a natural working together project"; Wendy Rea from Direct2Florist told us. "We will
make sure all our 850 D2F members have a full set of marketing material and tags but we'd love it if other florists could
get involved too and really show how the industry can work together."

The Lonely Bouquet is a heart-warming idea that we are happy to support all through the year, not just for the International
Lonely Bouquet Day on Sunday 30th June.
As we have over the last few years,
we will print personalised tags for any florist shop or flower arranging society that wants to take part completely FREE of
charge. We think it's a brilliant idea and a great opportunity to bring a smile to lots of faces with the power of flowers,
and in the process generate some great positive publicity for your shop or society, so we're happy to help as many
florists as possible.
print different design tags for Flower Arranging Societies and WI's (also free). Please click HERE to be taken to the right page for those tags.
Not heard about The Lonely Bouquet? It's a movement
developed by Fleuropean dedicated to "spreading happiness and smiles, one flower at a time". The idea is simple;
make a bouquet, attach a "take me!" tag, and leave it for a stranger to find to brighten their day. Have a look
at their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/TheLonelyBouquet) and you'll see how the idea has taken off, not just in Belgium where Emily Avenson started it, but now
throughout the UK and across the globe.
