Floral Angels, recycling flowers...delivering bouquets of kindness
who we are
Floral Angels was created in 2013 to recycle and reuse flowers from events, weddings and retailers. We deliver bouquets and arrangements to those in the community who would not normally receive flowers. In doing this we are also supporting the floral industry in reducing waste. Floral Angels is run entirely by volunteers and we are based at New Covent Garden Flower Market in London, in space generously donated by event florists Pinstripes & Peonies.
We deliver to hospices, elderly care homes, shelters and many other deserving beneficiaries within our community. We are extremely well supported by many leading florists, event professionals and venues , and major retailers.
We believe that flowers have healing properties which can impact people's recovery rate and well-being. When we deliver the bouquets we offer support, encouragement and a moment of kindness.
The flowers bring joy to all who receive them and this is what motivates our wonderful team of volunteers. This is supported by academic studies which show that flowers have a positive effect on elderly patients.

what people are saying
Thank you so much for the very pretty bouquet of flowers that you gave my Mother last week. She is a little too frail now to go out very much and spends many hours in her room.
The flowers look beautiful and have added some sunshine to her surroundings.
"We are looking for volunteer drivers to join our team for a few hours a week over 26 years of age to deliver flowers to care homes in the London area."
