Endeavour Foundation is preparing to put the ‘mum in Mother’s Day, by selling beautiful floral bunches at train stations around the city, just in time for the ‘big day’.
For more than 20 years community volunteers have gathered to harvest the beautiful chrysanthemum crops in Bundaberg which, this year, will be available at South Brisbane, Roma Street and Central stations on Friday, 12 May from 1–6pm, or until sold out!
Volunteers will join people with a disability to sell the $10 bunches of flowers, which have been grown and hand-picked at the charity’s Bundaberg Business Service. Endeavour Foundation North Queensland Manager, Geoffrey Atwell, encouraged people to snap up an extra special treat for the mother’s in their lives.
“The funds we raise will be used to partner with people with a disability to explore the possibilities within their own lives, whether that’s employment, community access, life skill development or independent living.
“It’s a great way to treat someone you love, while doing an extra bit of good. Particular thanks to our supporters, Queensland Rail, for allowing us to share our blooms with commuters ahead of this special weekend.”
Carefully controlled lighting is used to ensure the plants bloom just in time for 14 May, ensuring that much-loved mums can enjoy chrysanthemums at their absolute best.
“We’re busy getting 6,000 bunches picked and ready for dispatch,” Geoffrey said, “but every year – through the hard work of our teams – we manage it and this year will be no different.
“As an extra special treat, we’ll be delivering bunches to mums at Seasons Aged Care in Redbank Plains – hopefully our blooms will brighten up their day.”
Bunches of chrysanthemums will be selling for $10 at South Brisbane, Roma Street and Central stations on Friday, 12 May from 1–6pm.
