Nip didn’t know this, but she rocked up to our station having no idea that she was about to be recognised as one of our Ordinary Hero’s!
When it was finally revealed, she was a little shocked but also very grateful. To that we say a big thank you to Nip and the wonderful team at GG’s Flowers.
About GG’s Flowers:
GG’s Flowers are a locally run florist with a very sweet purpose.
We have a beautiful sister, Gayana Wijewickrema, a 15-year-old girl with Down Syndrome. Gayana is a cheeky girl that loves going out with her family, experimenting Frozen Yogurt flavours, smiling and cuddling.
Life is bound to be tough for Gayana, who struggles with basic communication skills. However, lucky for Gayana, she has an army of sisters and two loving parents who are committed to ensuring she has a fulfilling life. Geetha, Gayana’s mum is a fully trained and accredited florist with an artistic flair.
And that’s how GG’s Flowers was born. GG’s Flowers (the G’s standing for Gayana and Geetha) is a socially sustainable business that aims to provide people with disabilities with meaningful employment opportunities.
When we receive your order, Gayana and Geetha work together to make you a beautiful arrangement for any occasion. Then Gayana, delivers the flowers to your door, with a big smile and even bigger ulteria motive- she really wants to meet your dog.
