The Leisure and Outdoor Furniture Association (LOFA) has donated £10,000 to the Greenfingers Charity.

The donation from the trade association will be used to help kickstart work at Greenfingers’ latest project at The Nook, a children’s hospice in Norfolk which falls under the umbrella of East Anglia Children’s Hospices.

Speaking about the donation, Pravin Patel, chairman of LOFA said: “We at LOFA are really so happy to be able to continue our on-going support for Greenfingers – particularly at a time when even more people need safe green places. It will be great to see the development of the new project at the Nook to the fantastic standards of the Greenfingers team.”

Linda Petrons, Greenfingers’ director of fundraising and communications said: “We cannot thank our friends at LOFA enough for their support once again. This generous donation will be put to very good use helping to transform the garden at the hospice. On behalf of us all at Greenfingers – thank you!”
