Customers and staff at the Haskins Garden Centre at West End Southampton have been thanked by the fundraising team at the Countess Mountbatten Hospice following the presentation of a cheque for £2912.30, and a £50 gift card for the charity to use as a raffle or competition prise. Ruth Andrew, Events and Community Assistant from the hospice accepted the cheque from the centre’s General Manager Matt Hill who said that the funds were raised from the charity wishing well and events and competitions held over recent months.
“This is presented on behalf of our generous customers and our centre team who organise the fundraising activities,” said Matt Hill. “It proves that so many people in the region appreciate the specialist palliative care service provided by the hospice.”
Ruth Andrew said that there are now new fundraising events planned at the centre including Blooming Beauties on the 14th May, Strictly Christmas on the 15th October and a Halloween special on 30th October.
