Cherry Lane Garden Centre in Bradmore has donated £224.55 to children’s charity Rainbows Hospice.
The store, located on Pendock Lane, raised the funds through sales of its 5p plastic carrier bags and decided to donate the money to a very worthy local cause chosen by the store team.
Rainbows Hospice is the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people. Located in Loughborough, it provides care and support for life-limited children and their families.
Helen Foster, commercial director of QD Stores Group which owns Cherry Lane, said: “The sales from our 5p carrier bags have enabled us to provide much-needed funds to local charities selected by our store teams.
“We endeavour to fundraise in as many ways as possible for both local and national charities and this has always been aided by the help and support of our customers.”
