Every year we collect for the British Lung Foundation
We have so far raised a total of £6,538.59 since 2011
£357.53 raised in 2017 from our Charity Patch Bench and collection tins.
Many thanks to our kindhearted customers for their generous donations. A spartan charity patch bench offered plants free, but invited a donation to the British Lung Foundation from 1st June until we closed down on Saturday 3rd June 2017.
Due to our plants selling like hot cakes early in the season not so much as usual was available for our annual charity event. Despite fewer plants we were very pleased with the sum of money raised, although this represents a significant downturn over the money raised in previous years. Our change of emphasis from a “Free for All” on the last day to a “Charity Patch” where a varied selection of plants were frequently replenished over the last three days of trading offered something for everyone; with the plants free, but any donation welcome to the British Lung Foundation. We are most grateful to our generous customers who gave their cash so willingly to support the work of the BLF.
