The donation saw Bunches gift 200 bouquets to Hucknall National Primary School and Rufford Primary and Nursery School in Bulwell close to its headquarters in Newstead Village.

Pupils were given the chance to gift the bouquets to their mums ahead of Mothering Sunday on March 14.

National held a competition asking children to create pictures, poems, and letters explaining why their mum or special female figure deserves one of Bunches’ beautiful bouquets, to be in with a chance of winning the flowers.

Dani Turner, customer experience director at Bunches, said: “Mother’s Day is such a special time of year for us.

"We love helping our customers to bring a smile to the amazing women in their lives.

“It was lovely to be able to spread joy to so many families for Mother’s Day, especially after such a challenging year of home-schooling and separation from loved ones.

"We really hope all the ladies enjoy receiving their blooms.”

Sarah Barratt, headteacher at National, said: “It has been wonderful to celebrate with all of our families and give them some beautiful flowers from Bunches.

"All the parents have worked so hard to either educate their children at home or on the front-line as key workers and it is so important that we recognise and give thanks for the immense contribution that they have made to our pupils and the whole community.

“It has also been fantastic to acknowledge our dedicated staff who have been so committed to providing the absolute best for all of our pupils in such very challenging circumstances.”

Dani added: "It has been an exceptionally busy 12 months for us and we’re so pleased that throughout the pandemic we have been able to keep people connected and allow them to show their love with beautiful flowers and gifts.

"Giving something back to the community is really important to us and seeing the children’s faces light up when we gave them the flowers made it even more special.”
