Ian (pictured above) said:

“I opened my florist, The Flower Studio based in the Wayfarers Arcade in Southport in February this year offering a host of floral arrangements, plants and cut flowers.

We specialise in wedding flowers and have been creating floral arrangements and bridal flowers for a few years now.

As a local business I feel that it is important to support our community and good causes such as Sefton Carers.

Having a daughter who suffers from autism I know the difficulties some families may face.

I created HRH’s bouquet as a gift to the charity which was made from beautiful roses and freesia.

It was nice to give something back!”
