Old Barn Garden Centre & Nursery in Dial Post raised more than £400 for Greenfingers at a charity fundraising weekend held in March.

Both staff and customers were invited to help raise much needed funds through a variety of fun fundraising activities. Some members of staff dressed as gnomes, whilst others held a cake sale. Many customers spared their loose change to fill as many wellies as possible and a record amount bought raffle tickets to win a store gift card. Children were also invited to join in with ‘paint a mug’ and ‘decorate cupcakes’ activities, with all proceeds going to the charity.

Laura King, Local and Community Events Manager at Old Barn said: “We’re delighted to be able to support Greenfingers and raise a fantastic £408.73! We’re so grateful for everyone’s support; the money we have raised will make a big difference.”

Old Barn Garden Centre is dedicated to supporting both local and national charities. If you would like to find out how Old Barn Garden Centre can support you, please contact Laura King on 01403 710000.
