Rockhampton Service Manager Rhiannon Kelly said it was a lovely way to support people with disability while getting a beautiful bouquet for mum.

“We love giving the people we support the chance to meet other members of the community and practice their social and numeracy skills,” Ms Kelly said.

“This year, we’ve got 200 bunches of gorgeous chrysanthemums to sell in time for Mother’s Day in both Gladstone and Rockhampton.

“I’d encourage locals to pick up a bunch or two and put a smile on the dial of your mum or another loved one this week.

“Bunches cost just $15 and all proceeds go towards our essential programs, supporting people with a disability to find meaningful employment, learn new skills, access the community and live more independently in a home that meets their needs,”

Flowers will be available at Gladstone Learning and Lifestyle hub, 2 Joyner Close, Glen Eden, on Saturday, May 8 from 9am to 12pm or until sold out.
