RTE sports broadcaster and Kilkenny native Evanne Ni Chuilinn has launched the second Mother’s Day Bloom Bowl – a special gift initiative by Glanbia CountryLife stores to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society.

Glanbia’s 16 CountryLife garden centres will sell a special floral gift for Mother’s Day with all proceeds from the sale going to the charity’s breast cancer programme. The Mother’s Day Bloom Bowl – a collection of seasonal bedding plants of Primroses, Narcissus ‘Tête-à-tête’ and Pansies arranged in a pink Roma Planter bowl – will go on sale in all Glanbia CountryLife garden centres next week.

All of the flowers are grown in Ireland. The Mother’s Day Bloom Bowl costs €9.99 and donations can also be made to the Irish Cancer Society online at www.countrylife.ie
