Why Grandparents Day Matters
Established in the 1970s by West Virginia resident, Marian McQuade, Grandparents’ Day is a national holiday that recognises all of the hard work and support that grandparents provide for us all year round. In 1990 Age Concern brought the occasion over to the UK but in spite of this it is a sad fact that only 66% of grandparents have ever celebrated Grandparents’ Day.
This year Interflora, the flower experts are looking to give Grandparents’ Day some much needed attention by launching a new competition on their Facebook page to find the UK’s best grandparents. To nominate your grandparents all you have to do is visit the Interflora Facebook page from 3rd September and tell them why your grandparents are so great. The winners will receive a beautiful floral gift delivered to their door on Grandparents’ Day on Sunday 7th October.
If you want to find another way to show your appreciation for all the love and support your grandparent give you then why not treat them to a wonderful gift on Grandparents’ Day. Interflora are offering 10% discount on their range of delivered gifts including exquisite bouquets, hampers and gifts. To obtain your discount simply enter ‘grand2012’ at the checkout.
