Leyburn garden centre supports charity

Trevor, Ruth, and Mia the dog.

A Leyburn business has signed up to help a charity.

Ruth and Trevor Hawkes, from Wensleydale Garden Centre, are working with Marie Curie, which supports people suffering from terminal illness.

The partnership means that 25p from all daffodil bulb sales will go the charity.

A similar arrangement is planned for cut daffodils in the spring, while a memory tree, where you can make a donation and hang a  bauble or tag in memory of a lost loved one, is being discussed for Christmas.

Marie Curie community fundraiser Gemma Hewit said: “The garden centre is a treasure trove of all things gardening, and of course is one of many reasons to visit lovely Leyburn.

“They source plants locally wherever possible, to give them the best chance of success in the North of England climate.

“I’m so pleased to work with Trevor and Ruth – it is the perfect partnership showcasing our daffodil logo.”

The centre  also has a pound pot where you can donate old pound coins even after the October 15 deadline.
