Thank you to everyone that came along to the plant sale at Mason Road on Saturday (3rd June), as well as an equally big thank you to the garden centre's, nurseries, KHS members and public who generously donated plants.
An amazing £972 was raised in the morning which was donated to Kemp Hospice.
We didn't manage to sell every item though as there was quite a large selection, but rest assured, as the remaining plants will not be going to waste. They have been shared equally between the TWIGS Horticulture Project (The Emily Jordan Foundation), and for the Charity KHS Open Garden Day event on the 25th June, the beneficiaries of which will be Acorns Children's Hospice and the Alzheimer's Society.
The summer show is the first of our annual events for entrants to have their exhibits judged by a panel of professional judges, in the categories of Flowers, Vegetables, Domestic and Floral Art and will be on the 1st July 2017 at Holy Innocents Community Hall, Stourport Road, Kidderminster. DY11 6LA, from 10am till 2pm.
It's FREE entrance so why not come along to view the exhibits and grab a bargain from the plant sale.
Today we raised £580 in plant sales, plus £110 in a raffle. Kemp Hospice then raised another £270 in refreshments and book sales etc. The total for the day was £960, which was comparable to the previous year.
Thank you to all that attended to help raise money for this local worthwhile charity.
