Shoppers walking around Lincoln next weekend who spot a bouquet sitting alone on a bench will have the nice surprise of being able to take them home as part of a campaign.
The event is a worldwide campaign which hopes to brighten a stranger’s day through flowers.
To do this, the Co-op will put five bouquets in different areas around the city centre.
If someone finds one of the bouquets, they will be encouraged to post pictures of their flowers on Lincolnshire Co-op’s social media feeds or here on The Lincolnite using #LonelyBouquet.
Florist Manager Sharon French said: “We know how people react to receiving a beautiful bouquet of blooms so when we heard about International Lonely Bouquet Day we thought it was a great excuse to spread a little joy!”
Lincolnshire Co-op Florists are based on Portland Street in Lincoln but will move to a new location at Birchwood Shopping Centre in the summer.
