Elizabeth Moss, 88, who has been a resident at the council-run Farnish House for just under three years, came up with the fragrant way to show her gratitude.

"I love it here and I wanted to give something back to the other resident and staff to let them know how much I appreciate what they have done for me," she said.

Her donation has been used to purchase a lovely array of bright and colourful arrangements of lavenders, roses and hydrangeas for all the residents to enjoy all year round and for many years to come.

Lesley Harsent, Farnish House scheme manager, said: "Elizbeth's donation is very kind and has helped make a real difference to the patio area and has created a lovely view from the lounge too. We have used about half of Elizabeth donation so far so will there are more flowers to come."
