DO YOU know an unsung community champion whose hard work and tireless efforts deserve recognition?
Perhaps a kindly soul whose caring nature brightens the lives of family, friends and neighbours? Or a generous volunteer who willingly gives up their time for a worthy cause?
There are a host of modest heroes in our midst, hidden gems whose dedication and hard work could use a little floral thanks. Show them their efforts are appreciated - nominate them for a Dispatch Rose.
As part of our new Dispatch Rose initiative, we’ve teamed up with Hucknall family-run florist R&S Terzza to celebrate the local area’s pick of the bunch.
In true community spirit, we’ll give much-deserved recognition to one local person, dedicated duo or tireless team each week who have gone that extra mile to make the area a better place to live.
Our new floral friendship has excellent roots. R&S Terzza, who will be providing the winning roses each week, has been keeping the town in bloom for 28 years.
Run by husband and wife team Robert and Shirley Terzza, the popular Watnall Road florist is a well-respected name in town, starting out almost three decades ago as a flower, fruit and veg seller.
The couple have seen their business blossom over the years and are thrilled to be donating the Dispatch Roses.
Shirley told Dispatch: “We’re very happy to play our part in the new Dispatch Rose Awards. Often helping hands go unnoticed, so we think it’s a lovely idea.
“Saying thank you with a flower is a great way of showing that special someone they’re appreciated.”
The idea behind the Rose Awards is that nominations are made in secret, ensuring the chosen recipient will receive a nice surprise.
Simply give us a call or drop us an e-mail with your nominee, letting us know exactly what it is that makes them so special, and why they stand out from the crowd.
If you know someone who deserves their praises singing, please get in touch. Call 01623 450294 with details, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
