Staff from natural stone landscaping producer Natural Paving have presented a cheque for £1,600 to a charity that creates gardens at children’s hospices nationwide.
Two members of the team raised the money by taking part in the Bupa Great Manchester Run earlier this year in aid of Greenfingers.
Gino Bracco, sales director, said: “Paul Shephard and Simon Porter, participated in the run for Greenfingers.
“We would like to thank everyone who sponsored them and helped us to raise £1,600 for an extremely worthy cause.”
Greenfingers was launched in November 1998 by a group of volunteers drawn from all sectors of the gardening industry.
Growers, plant breeders, retailers, manufacturers and a host of gardening journalists and celebrities have willingly contributed materials, time and expertise to create gardens at children’s hospices around the UK. To date, Greenfingers has created 39 gardens.
All of the money will go towards creating a new garden at Derian House Children’s Hospice in Chorley, Lancashire.
