Wendy’s gifts for charities

Have your say

A GENEROUS South Yorkshire woman has sown the seeds for her new business – and reaped £167 for charity.

Wendy Urbaniak, aged 39, of Brinsworth, Rotherham, held a champagne reception to mark the launch of Urban Petals and raffled off her prize flowers to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and the Special Care Baby Unit, Rotherham.

Jill Mellors, who works with Wendy at the florists on Brinsworth Lane and whose son Sam has cystic fibrosis, said: “The shop was full all night. I’ve been raising funds for 10 years for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, in the hope they can find a cure.”
