New Covent Garden Flower Market has donated festive foliage to a community centre in north London, supporting residents to host a unique Christmas wreath-making session.

The Greenwood Centre is a community resource centre in Kentish Town, NW5, offering a range of services and activities that support independence, inclusion, health and wellbeing.

“We were hoping to be able to make some Christmas wreaths,” explains Sharon Carter, Assistant Practitioner at Greenwood Mental Health Service. With holy, pine sprigs and Christmas related greenery supplied by Flower Market business GB Foliage, residents at The Greenwood Centre were able to take part in a community event that that made Christmas extra special.

“Thanks to the support of Covent Garden Flower Market our Greenwood women’s group had a wonderful afternoon putting together Christmas wreaths using their generous donations,” says Sharon. “We hope that next year, all being well, we can do it again.”
