The Ferndown Haskins Garden Centre team and customers, through their charity wishing well,  events and competitions, raised £3078.30p for their 2013 charity of the year, Diverse Abilities Plus.

The Dorset based disability charity provides a range of assistance, support and education services for young people aged two to 19, adults and their families. Beccy Payne, the charity’s Corporate and Community Fundraiser, accepted the cheque from Haskins Customer Services manager Joolz Walford and General Manager Simon Morris and thanked them for the funds raised and support over the past 12 months.

Simon Morris said that a large percentage of the money raised was from customers visiting their successful Christmas and Halloween events, and the wishing well, and they were delighted to present the cheque on behalf of everyone who donated.

Beccy Payne said: “We’d like to thank Haskins and its customers for the fantastic support over the past year.  The monies raised are really appreciated and will further fund our charity’s projects to support adults and children with disabilities in Dorset.”
