For the past three years members of Allotments 4 All, including myself, have done a Christmas present donation to a national gardening charity.
In 2009 it was to Thrive, in 2010 to Gardening Leave and last year Greenfingers was chosen. I’d not heard of it so when it was suggested I looked at the website, and the Charity Commission overview, to find out all about it.
It’s a small national charity that creates magical gardens for children’s hospices to support children with life limiting conditions, together with their families.
Greenfingers was clearly a good choice as the total donated was almost £670, our best yet much to our delight. As one member commented…It’s really heartwarming to see such generosity, especially when things are hard for many right now, and it fair restores your faith in humanity.
This is another charity that I’m not only happy to donate to but support by including the logo as a link over on the right. I also like it on Facebook and follow it on Twitter, where it’s @Greenfingerscha.
