Cardwell Garden Centre Glows Gold for September

by | Aug 30, 2016 | News | 0 comments

Bosses at a Scots garden centre have painted a traditional Red telephone box Gold in support of a young Leukaemia sufferer who is trying to raise and spread awareness of childhood cancers across the UK.

Cardwell Garden Centre, which is located in Lunderston Bay, Gourock, are backing the local five-year-old, Nathan Mowat, who is urging businesses and organisations to turn buildings, landmarks and objects Gold during September.

The Glow Gold September Campaign aims to raise awareness of the disease, which is diagnosed in ten children in the UK every day, and also to throw the funding of the drugs which treat these childhood cancers into the spotlight.

Sadly, as many as a quarter of these children will most likely pass away from these cancers and many will be left with side effects from treatments that have barely changed in the past 30 years.

Parents of child cancer victims have set up the Glow Gold September campaign with backing and support of well-known charities including Cancer Research UK Kids and Teens Fund and Clic Sargent.

Paul Carmichael, Cardwell?s retail general manager said: ?Cancer is a terrible disease and it?s particularly heartbreaking when it strikes at a child.

Nathan is a brave wee soul and is doing a great job letting everyone know about the Glow Gold September campaign.

We?ve had the traditional red telephone box in the garden centre for several years now and there?s actually a working phone inside that gives visitors to Cardwell a direct link to our customer services desk.

There aren?t many of these red phone boxes around these days, so it?s quite an attraction.

We thought the best way to get people?s attention to the Glow Gold September campaign would be to paint the red telephone box gold and position it at our main entrance.?
