Back in December, Haddenham Garden Centre kindly hosted a Christmas Grotto. The timing was perfect since Father Christmas had just accepted an invitation by Haddenham & District Rotary Club to come and meet local youngsters!
The Garden Centre generously donated all the gifts handed out by Father Christmas, and all proceeds from the Christmas Grotto go towards the Rotary Club's fundraising efforts on behalf of local charities.
On Monday 24th February Haddenham Garden Centre staff handed over their cheque to the Rotary Club. Pictured (on the left) is Peter Barnes from Haddenham & District Rotary Club with Stephen Hawkins from Haddenham Garden Centre. The amount raised was £3,888 which the Garden Centre generously rounded up to £4,000.
The money raised will go to support a number of local charities. Those benefitting in recent years have included:
- Children's Health & Therapy (CHAT) Aylesbury
- Florence Nightingale Hospice, Stoke Mandeville
- Haddenham Junior Cricket Club
- Haddenham Youth Football Club
- Haddenham Community Library
- Haddenham Youth Centre
- Helen & Douglas House
- Lighthouse Trust Thame
- Thames Valley & Chiltern Air Ambulance
- Young Carers' Bucks
