Grandparents provide an incredible £33 billion worth of day care for their grandchildren, so why have only 66% of grandparents ever celebrated Grandparents’ Day? Since being introduced to the UK in 1990 by Age Concern, this special occasion has grown in popularity but Interflora wants to do more to raise the profile of grandparents and their contribution to society.
Grandparents’ Day began as a campaign led by West Virginia resident Marian McQuade. She had grown up seeing how hard her grandmother worked for her own family as well as for the local community and believed that a national holiday should be set aside for grandparents all over the world. Since then the occasion has across the globe and this year will be celebrated in the UK on Sunday 7th October.
Interflora is making it even easier to celebrate the occasion by offering 10% off their flowers and gifts.
