Fu­neral flower fi­nal­ist

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Helping Others -

A florist has reached the fi­nals of The Good Fu­neral Awards af­ter nom­i­na­tions from her cus­tomers for her beau­ti­ful tributes.

Re­becca Sharp, 40, runs the Daz­zle Me Daisy Do web­site and has been mak­ing flo­ral ar­range­ments since she was 14.

Now Ms Sharp, from Ten­ter­den, has been named as one of the top five florists se­lected by judges to go to the awards cer­e­mony in Winch­ester on Satur­day.

She said: “It was a bit of a sur­prise to get the phone call to say I was in the run­ning for it. It was very emo­tional to be nom­i­nated from cus­tomers.

“What­ever they said must have been nice for me to have been given this chance. It’s a huge priv­i­lege, re­gard­less of whether I win or not.

“For some peo­ple it is a bit mor­bid, but for me it’s a real hon­our to make tributes. It’s as if I’m help­ing make some­one’s fi­nal jour­ney re­ally beau­ti­ful.”
