Raffle Raises Funds For Children’s Hospice Garden Appeal

The Haskins Roundstone Garden Centre near Worthing supported the Green Fingers Charity’s appeal to help fund gardens for children’s hospices across the country.  A special raffle for an assortment of gardening goodies was arranged by staff at the centre.  The gardening kit included a wheelbarrow full of compost, gardening tools, and clothing items for the lucky winner.  The raffles held at the four Haskins centres across the south have raised a total of £2,290 for the appeal.

The lucky ticket holder at Roundstone was John May and his wife Gillian from Goring. The retired butcher of 30 years in Durrington attended the presentation at the garden centre with grandson and keen gardener Matthew May, 10, a pupil at Worthing’s Orchards middle school.

“This is exciting as we rarely ever win anything!” said John as Nick Joad the General Manager presented the prizes.  “Matthew will help us improve our garden using the equipment.”
