Around £700 was raised by volunteers for a charity that supports adults with learning difficulties.
The Flower Pod, part of Southwell-based Reach Learning Disability, made bouquets and willow heart keepsakes to sell as Valentine’s Day gifts.

Flower Pod, based at Brackenhurst, gives people with learning difficulties the chance to grow and sell flowers.

They sold the bouquets and heart keepsakes at Southwell Rugby Club.

On Valentine’s Day, they had a stall in the Co-op in Southwell, to sell bouquets.

Eleanor Leivers, Flower Pod flower and confetti product manager, said: “We are pleased we raised in the region of £700 from the sale of our bouquets and heart keepsakes.

“We sold around 20 bouquets at the clubhouse, to residents in the area, and customers in the Co-op.”

More were sold at the Auto Centre garage in Southwell.
