After in search of the lovely Red Naomi rose to send to her family this February 14th, and finding that the massive florists were selling them for an eye fixed-watering £40 a stem, budding entrepreneur Sophie Rumble decided to establish her own online shop in order that her, and others like her, could all afford to send that special someone a rose on St Val’s Day.
Just per week-and-a-half later, Sophie had managed to barter with producers in Holland, mounted her own website, and secure 1000 blooms that she could sell at half the cost of the enormous retailers.
Sophie then pledged to provide a £1,000 cash prize if she managed to sell all 1,000 roses.
Now, the newly-trained florist has decided to provide all of the profits to breast cancer charity, Maggie’s, in memory of her mother, who died of the disease when Sophie was just 11.
