KIND students helped spread festive cheer to those who faced Christmas alone.

East Durham College’s floristry department took part in the British Florist Association (BFA) Lonely Christmas Bouquet campaign.

The project saw those studying the skill create bouquets which were then left around Durham with a message asking someone to take it and pass it on to someone that may be lonely this Christmas.

The college’s floristry lecturer Sue Lee said: “As soon as the BFA got in touch, I knew it would be something the students would want to get involved with.

“The students have made some fantastic bouquets to place around Durham and hopefully, people will take their time to stop and get involved.

“Christmas can be a lonely time for some people and if from just using up a small amount of our time we can bring a smile to someone’s face, then it is all worth it.”

The bouquets all featured a note explaining where they had come from.

Sue added: “We can’t wait to see where the bouquets ended up.

“We left notes on the flowers asking people to go to our Facebook page and let us know what has happened with them.”
