A floral wholesaler near Sandy is to host an event to help raise funds for the Bedfordshire Red Cross.

Savin Wholesalers, normally only open to the trade, is putting on a spring flower demonstration and master class on Tuesday, April 19.

Doors will open at 11am, the demonstration will start at noon and finish at 3pm.

Savin’s own demonstrator Sarah Long will be creating a number of spring flower and plant arrangements that guests can recreate at home.

Sarah, who creates unique arrangements with a contemporary flair, will be taking questions from guests. The arrangements will be available on the day for people to win during the raffle or buy after the masterclass.

Guests will also have the opportunity to buy goods as well from the shop that is usually just open for wholesale. Refreshments and a light lunch of soup and cakes will be available, and there will be a raffle and tombola.

Tickets are £10, which includes a hot drink on arrival, available from Savin before the day or booked through The Red Cross via http://www.redcross.org.uk/Get-

involved/Events/Challenge-and-social-events/Social-events/Savin-Flower-Demonstration or through senior fundraiser Natasha Robertson at The Red Cross on 07753 853214 or nvrobertson@redcross.org.uk.

The funds raised at the Flower Demonstration will go to the services that The Red Cross provide in the area.

Natasha said: “Locally we have helped thousands of people in need during 2015.

The funds raised through this event will enable us to continue to help people in crisis in the area. A massive thank you to Savin for enabling The Red Cross to put on the Flower Demonstration, the funds raised really will make a difference to people’s lives.”
