This evening’s gorgeous table flowers, via the work of Perpetual Blooms, will be donated to Ronald McDonald House, children's hospice Very Special Kids and Work Education Polytechnic - a work skills program in Preston for school leavers with a disability.
The flowers will be refreshed and re-purposed into posies to brighten the day for these children and young people.
This service is valued at $3,200 and this is your opportunity to ‘give’ in a very unique way this evening. Each posy will be tagged acknowledging you as the donor. You will also receive an email with images of the flowers’ delivery, as well as an Instagram post acknowledging you should you wish. To round out a wonderful gesture, after a week the spent blooms will be collected by Perpetual Blooms for composting.

Sail away with a friend with this ‘Cruising the Thai Islands ex. Phuket’ adventure cruise.
Encounter perfect beaches and small village life in the less-visited isles off the west coast of Southern Thailand on this seven night Adventure Cruise.
The spoils of Southern Thailand are no secret, but like in so many other paradise-like pockets of South East Asia, there’s always more to discover. Escape the tourists on a new Peregrine adventure cruise that takes in some of the most spectacular little islands off Thailand’s west coast. The Similan Islands, Ko Miang Ko Surin Tai and Khao Lak offer all the hallmarks of Thailand’s idyllic south - the warm blue-green Andaman Sea, blinding white sands and marvellous limestone oddities - without the glitz and bustle of mainland Phuket. Dine and share stories with locals in small villages, explore jungle and boulder-studded shorelines and swim and snorkel the afternoons away.
