The Buchanan Galleries will once more be decorated with delicate paper flowers filled with messages of support for sick children this weekend.

The first Full Bloom Flower workshop saw over 100 flowers crafted by visitors and hung on to blossom trees within the mall before being sent to the Glasgow Children's Hospital Charity.

The touching letters of encouragement were then shared with patients who are undergoing 'life changing' treatments.

William McGowan, Head of Partnerships & Events at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity said: “We’re so thankful to visitors at Buchanan Galleries who took some time out of their shopping to donate a kind word to help create smiles for patients, their families and the NHS staff caring for them.

"The personalised messages have been so heart-warming, and it’s been such a delight to see patients bloom with joy whilst reading them."

Visitors of all ages are invited to pen their own messages and make a small suggested donation of £2 with all proceeds going to the Glasgow Children's Hospital.

Kathy Murdoch, Centre Manager at Buchanan Galleries said: “It’s been wonderful to see so many visitors of all ages adding a blossoming touch to the centre and sharing a kind word and well-wishes for patients at Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity.

“We wanted to create a series of floral experiences for our visitors, and we can’t wait to see our guests capturing positive, memorable moments at the centre this spring.”
