FLOWERS were a welcome surprise for residents at the Blue Care Brassall Aged Care Facility, who were treated to a random act of kindness from The Flower Project.

The foundation is aimed at delivering "bouquets of caring" to residents in need of a boost or recognition, The Flower Project's Francesca Petherbridge said.

The delivery to elderly Brassall residents was the group's first Ipswich venture, and Ms Petherbridge encouraged Ipswich people to get involved in the project by donating money, volunteering or nominating someone to receive flowers.

Ms Petherbridge said the The Flower Project helped to build a sense of community and show kindness.

"It's always a surprise - that's how we like to work," she said.
