Celebrate Grandparents' Day with Interflora
Grandparents' Day October 7th
Marian McQuade is recognised across the world as the founder of Grandparents’ Day after she campaigned for a national holiday to honour the older generation’s contribution to society and the family. Grandparents’ Day was eventually brought over to the UK by Age Concern in 1990 and has been growing in popularity ever since.
However, despite being introduced all that time ago it is a sad fact that only 66% of grandparents have ever celebrated this special occasion. With more than 70 million grandparents in the UK today, and half of them providing some sort of care for their grandchildren, isn’t it about time they were recognised for all their hard work? Interflora – the flower experts believe that this year, more should be done to raise awareness of Grandparents’ Day and so have launched a new competition.
Treat your grandparents to a splendid gift and visit the Interflora Facebook page for a chance to win a beautiful flower arrangement for your grandparent. All you have to do is tell Interflora why your grandparent is the best by leaving your message on the ‘My Grandparents are Great…’ app between September 3rd and October 5th.
With an Interflora florist, you can send a wonderful gift to your grandparents on October 7th and really show them how much you appreciate them on Grandparents’ Day. Whether they taught you to read, ride a bike or bake cakes, send flowers to Keynsham with Interflora and surprise your grandparents on their special day.
