Celebrate Grandparents' Day with Interflora
Grandparents' Day October 7th
From helping out with daily chores to providing financial and emotional support, grandparents are taking an ever-more active role in bringing up the next generation.
Celebrated across the world, Grandparents’ Day was founded to recognise the contributions that grandparents make to society every day. Founded in the U.S in the 1970’s by a woman named Marian McQuade Grandparents’ Day is an official holiday recognising the work of grandparents across the country. Brought over to the UK in 1990 by Age Concern, the celebration has grown in popularity over the years.
Interflora has launched a new competition aimed at recognising all the hard work done by grandparents up and down the country. The competition is being launched in the run up to Grandparents’ Day on Sunday 7th October and gives you the opportunity to nominate your grandparents to win a beautiful floral arrangement.
To enter Interflora’s Grandparents’ Day competition, all you have to do is visit their Facebook page between 3rd September and 5th October and tell them why your grandparent deserves to win. Every day one lucky grandparent will be celebrated and receive a fantastic prize. You can also join in the celebration of grandparents by sharing fond memories and your own heart-warming stories of your grandparents.
Send a special gift for your grandparents and surprise them at their home by ordering online and choosing reliable flower delivery with Interflora. You can also drop into your local Interflora flower shop and take advantage of excellent flower delivery in Hitchin.
