  • Brackenwood Garden Centre charity walks raise more than £1,200

    Brackenwood Garden Centre organised some snowdrop strolls around its private woodland trail. It’s not normally open to the public.

    The company raised a total of £1,222, with half donated to the Jessie May Children’s Hospice at Home charity.
     
    Guided walks went through the site of an old celestine quarry. It then went through Brackenwood Garden Centre’s largest polytunnel. This allowed workers to see staff potting some of the 20,000 herbaceous perennials grown on site.
     
    Walkers then grabbed a hot drink and a bite to eat in the garden tea room.
     
    Organiser Sarah Winterstone said: “This is the fourth year I’ve run the snowdrop walks. We’ve raised several thousands of pounds for local charities.
     
    “We had a total of 317 people, of all ages, who completed the 16 walks.”
