Squire’s Garden Centres has raised £2,562.21 for numerous local charities thanks to its recent sunflower seed campaign.
In April, Squire’s gave away free packs of sunflower seeds to children to help brighten up their Easter holidays, and in return it asked customers to donate money to the charities that it supports. Donations from the sunflower seed campaign and other recent fundraising initiatives has meant that Squire’s has been able to donate more than £2,500 to help various local charities.
Sarah Squire, chairman of Squire’s, comments: “We know that many charities have found it a challenge to raise money during the pandemic, so we wanted to do something to help them and cheer people up at the same time. Thanks to the generosity of our customers, we were able to donate this terrific amount to the various local charities that each of our garden centres support.”
Louise Bingham from Horsley & Bookham Riding for the Disabled, one of the charities supported by Squire’s, says: “As well as helping to raise the profile of The Meath Epilepsy Charity, this donation from Squire’s is a very helpful boost to us, as we work hard to fundraise to cover the cost of our daily activity sessions which offer the people we support a fulfilled life.”
