Squire?s customers raise over ?21,300 for local charities

by | Jan 22, 2018 | Chains, News | 0 comments

The fantastic Christmas grottos at Squire?s Garden Centres have helped raise ?21,380.30 for numerous local charities. Squire?s customers donated this huge sum of money while visiting Santa in his grotto over the Christmas period. Customers also threw money into special wishing wells and fountains, and put money into collection pots at Squire?s, all of which is being donated to charity.

Some of the local charities that have benefitted from the generosity of Squire?s customers include Olive Tree Cancer Support Centre, Walton on Thames Charity, Princess Alice Hospice, The Samson Centre for MS, Dyscover, Richmond Carers Centre, Alzheimer?s Dementia Support, West Horsley & Bookham Riding For the Disabled, and the Aldershot & Farnborough Guide Dog Association.

Sarah Squire, Deputy Chairman at Squire?s commented:

?Our Christmas grottos always bring a smile to children?s faces, and it?s great to be able to bring some New Year cheer to the charities that we support by donating this money to them. Each of our garden centres chooses which local charity they would like to support for the year, and all donations from the public go directly to that charity. I hope the money raised will help support the wonderful work that they do in our local communities.?
