Say it with flowers

Wakatipu residents can treat their mums to a bouquet of flowers delivered by ambulance in a Mother's Day fundraiser for St John.

Queenstown florists Wild Poppies and In the Pink are taking orders for Mother's Day on May 11.

Customers pay $10 for the bouquet to be delivered to a Wakatipu address by an ambulance or the health shuttle.

Delivery fees will be given to the charitable emergency service to meet operational costs of the Frankton station.

''If people want to support St John, it's a very good way to do it,'' St John Queenstown area executive officer Jessica Patch said.
