Who would ever think that a trio of singing reindeer could help raise over ?4000 for charity at Christmas?
Well, Byrkley Park Garden Centre?s animated reindeer and Mortonhall Garden Centre?s miniature village, raised ?4000 over Christmas.?
The money is donated to St Giles Hospice, which is local to Byrkley Park Garden Centre in Rangemore. The MSA Trust, which is the Klondyke Group?s charity partner is another firm to benefit.
The festive village at Mortonhall, Edinburgh featured more than 100 toy characters. It took in a ski-lift, riding merry go rounds and sledging down snowy slopes.
The Christmas display was created by miniatures from the Lemax range of toys. People could recreate parts of the village in their own homes.
Matthew Bailey, Manager at Mortonhall, commented ?Thank you again to our customers who donated.
“The display has been visited and enjoyed by so many over the few months and we are delighted that we can pass this donation on to the MSA Trust.?
