Haskins Garden Centre in West End nominates Silk Bow Foundation as its Charity of the Year

The team at Haskins Garden Centre in West End has announced it will be focusing its fundraising efforts towards supporting Silk Bow Foundation for the year.


Employees at the centre aim to raise several thousands of pounds by running events throughout 2018, as well as providing the charity the space to host information and awareness evenings to raise further donations.

The Silk Bow Foundation operates in the SO postcode to help those that find everyday tasks challenging. Trustees are alerted to potential situations and the charity decides how best to lend a helping hand.

Lisa Looker, brand director at Haskins Garden Centres, commented: “It’s great that the West End centre will be supporting Silk Bow Foundation as its Charity of the Year. The charity runs a ‘Story Time’ event at Haskins every second Tuesday of the month to raise funds for the foundation. Guest storytellers are invited to read from 10.30-11.30am.

“We hope to be hosting lots of other events throughout the year and encourage our customers to get involved when they can.”
