AN EVENING of floral delights raised a really bloomin’ good total for a Scarborough charity.

Irton Garden Centre held a Festive Flowers event to make £377 for the Scarborough branch of Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The night featured a demonstration from in-house florist Danielle Taylor, who showed visitors a range of Christmas-themed displays.

People could also try their luck on a raffle and tombola during the evening, which organisers hailed a great success.

Ian Carpendale, Scarborough fundraiser for Marie Curie, said the evening was always a big hit with supporters.

He added: “We have had this event for a number of years and it always proves popular because people like to see professional florists demonstrate their skills and get tips for their own displays.

“It also nice to help people get in the Christmas spirit in the run up to the festivities.”
