Your chance to WIN flowers on International Women's Day!

08 March 2017

Today is International Women’s Day which will see Manchester host its first festival in support of amazing women across the world.  The movement is one that has really gained momentum in recent years celebrating not only the achievements of women but at the same time calling for true quality between genders, something I struggle believing is still on the table in 2017!

One campaign that caught our attention this year is the #DayWithoutAWoman drive, kicking off stateside but with likely powerful ripples across the pond.  The challenge is to assess the impact of a world without a woman’s contribution, both professionally and domestically.  It caused quite a discussion in the shop I can tell you!

So, we thought we’d get your input into the discussion and host our very own competition on Facebook.  Head over there today and comment on what will see you downing tools for the day.  Doing the school run? Instigating the brew round? Making the bed? Picking up milk on the way home?  Clearly, we’re keeping it light-hearted but be in no doubt of the vitally important contribution you make to the lives of those around you and beyond!

Enter now! You have until midnight to leave your comment and be in with a chance of winning this stunning Mixed Spring Bouquet worth £60.  Jam-packed with bold blooms of ranunculus, stocks and tulips, it makes a pretty and fitting tribute to the overarching IWD theme of #BeBoldForChange.
