Staff working at Haskins Garden Centre in West End, presented Countess Mountbatten Hospice with two roses and 250 packets of ‘forget-me-not’ seeds.
Two limited edition ‘Raspberry Delight’ roses which were named as part of the Haskins’ annual Rose Festival were donated to the hospice to plant in their garden, and the seeds were donated to use at the charity’s annual Forget-Me-Not Walk.
Countess Mountbatten House cares for people with life limiting illnesses, at the hospice and in the community. Ruth Andrew, fundraising project manager, at the hospice commented: “It’s fantastic to have Haskins continue to support the hospice. To date, they’ve raised thousands for the charity and the roses are already being enjoyed by patients and families.”
James Varney assistant general manager at Haskins Garden Centre in West End, said: “Our team are proud of our long standing association with Countess Mountbatten Hospice and we are pleased to donate our roses which we hope will give a lot of pleasure to their residents and visitors.”
