Hearts & Flowers for Mothers' Day

First stop is Rustic Rose in Shaftesbury to see what Kate is up to for Mothers' Day and then I am off to visit Emma and Jenny at Arcade Flowers in Ringwood

Here the florists have decided to help raise funds and awareness for the charity Hope and Homes for Children. They will be selling cakes and coffee in the shop and Emma and Jenny have decorated a tree in the window with blue hearts, on which children have written messages to their mums.

These local school children have clearly been moved by hearing about the children they are helping.
Hope and Homes believe children should grow up in families, not state institutions. They know how much harm this does to children so over the years they have become experts at reuniting babies and children with their families or if this is not possible ensuring they are brought up by loving foster families. They know just how important mums are.

When Hope and Homes reunites children living in institutions in some of the poorest parts of the world with their mums or endeavours to find them a new family, one of the first things they do is to understand what each child really wants. One of the ways they do this is to ask them to write their wishes on paper leaves that are then pinned to a ‘wish tree’

Most children wish for the kind of love that

these Dorset children will be thanking their mums for on Mothers’ Day.

Happy Mothers' Day
