Staff and elderly residents in nursing and care homes have been given bouquets of Easter lilies to help lift their spirits.

The Garden Club of Bermuda, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary, teamed up with Pacheco & Sons farm to deliver the flowers.

The club bought the flowers from the farm, which helped to deliver 100 bunches across the island.

A spokeswoman for the club said: “Supporting the community, the essential workers, the elderly and the local farmers is something that the Garden Club of Bermuda has always strived towards and this latest initiative is in keeping with these objectives.”

The Garden Club recently decorated the Bird Cage, on Front Street, with flowers – an early morning activity it dubbed a flower flash - in a bid to cheer up the public.

The spokeswoman said: “One of the missions of the Garden Club of Bermuda is the beautification of the island.

“Following the success of the flower flash we thought we would bring the joy indoors.”
