A concert performed by the Land Girls, hosted by the Ferndown Haskins Garden Centre, has raised £600 for Alzheimer’s Society. Land Girls Helen Golding and Pippa Thurgood performed a superb selection of nostalgic hits from the forties free of charge so that all proceeds made from tickets sold could be presented to the local branch of the charity.
The 120 members of the audience enjoyed beverages laid on by the Restaurant team with special homemade cakes during the interval and had the opportunity to meet Alison Adams and volunteers from the Society to learn more about the effects of Dementia and the support that can be offered by the charity. A raffle was also held to boost the fundraising.
Matt Hill, General Manager at Haskins, said that the evening was enjoyed by a wide age group within the audience and he and the catering team look forward to organising another concert in the New Year.
