CELEBRITY flower arranger Carl Wilde will be visiting Driffield on Thursday October 25 to help raise funds for the Dove House Hospice Love you 2 Appeal.

Carl will be demonstrating his floral skills at the Old Town Hall, 7pm for 7.30pm. Tickets are priced £8.50.

The theme for the evening will be ‘Autum Fruitfullness’

Pauline Speed, appeal manager said: “We are delighted that Carl is supporting the appeal, his creations are superb and his cheeky charm and wit will undoubtedly add to the enjoyment of the evening!”

Carl Wilde is one of Britain’s best loved floral designers. His ethos is simple - flowers should be fun.#

Carl first came to the attention of the flower industry for throwing the floristry rule book out, and creating an original and unique style.

He then became known to millions through his various TV appearances.

Many will associate him with the popular daytime ITV programme “This Morning”, but he has also appeared on and hosted many other series, where his easy approach and flamboyant personality made him a household favourite.

The event is being held to raise much needed funds for the local hospice.

The Love you 2 Appeal needs to raise £2.5 million to help re-develop the Dove House Hospice site on Chamberlain Road, Hull, to enable the expansion of services.

Pauline said: “This is a huge sum of money to raise but with nearly £1,013,491 already raised, and with everyone’s help it can be achieved.”

Tickets are available from The Bell Hotel and Dee Atkinson & Harrison (56 Market Place) in Driffield or from the appeal office on 01482 785744.
