Bloom & Wild
Carers Trust’s Partnership with Bloom & Wild
Bloom & Wild, the UK’s most-loved online florist, has been supporting Carers Trust since October 2020. For every Florist’s Pick bouquet that Bloom & Wild sells, 15% of the profit comes to Carers Trust. Their florists refresh the limited-edition designs every four weeks, so they’re always changing.
We are incredibly pleased to announce that since October 2020, Bloom & Wild customers have helped raise an incredible £330,000 for unpaid carers. This is a remarkable achievement that we’re hugely grateful for.
Bloom & Wild’s support helps Carers Trust to deliver impactful programmes and grants where they are needed most. Thanks to Bloom & Wild, we have been able to support 1,340 unpaid carers through grants already.
“Thank you so SO much. You have no idea how much of a weight you have just taken off my mind.”
Jane, a carer who thanks to Bloom & Wild, was awarded a grant of £250 towards the cost of a new washing machine.
We are working together to build recognition and awareness of unpaid carers across the UK, who care for their loved ones every day. Many young and young adult carers have seen an increase of 30 hours or more in the amount of time they spend caring every week, and almost two thirds of adult carers are now spending 50 hours or more per week caring. It is now more important than ever to recognise, reach and support them.
Through raising valuable funds and using our collective voices to share stories and campaigns through social media and through Bloom & Wild’s creative platform, Care Wildly, we hope to have a huge impact.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to give unpaid carers across the UK a larger platform to be recognised for the incredible care they give to friends, family, and loved ones every day. Bloom & Wild’s philosophy and ethos of recognising those who Care Wildly, has great synergy with Carers Trust. That’s why we’re excited about the impact and reach that this partnership will have for unpaid carers.”
Svetlana Kirov, Executive Director of Fundraising, Carers Trust
“We may not realise it, but many of us know an unpaid carer. The friend who’s looking after their terminally ill mum. The parent who left their job to care for a child with special needs. The teenager missing college to help a sibling struggling with mental health. As a company who sees the huge impact that care has on others - this really struck a chord with us. We wanted to do more to recognise the people who endlessly care wildly for others. So, we’re proud to support Carers Trust and the work they do to support these incredible people, so they can live a better life themselves.”
