Notcutts Wheatcroft Garden Centre in Edwalton was one of 11 Notcutts Garden Centres nationwide who helped to raise over £5,000 for the Royal British Legion during a fundraising campaign.
The total was raised as customers had the option of rounding up their purchase at the till with the difference going to charity. Notcutts Wheatcroft Garden Centre contributed over £500 towards the fundraising total.
Notcutts chose to support The Royal British Legion, the UK’s leading Armed Forces charity, in recognition of 100 years since the end of The First World War.
The money raised will go towards helping today’s Armed Forces communities, who need support in a range of issues including financial support, mobility problems and housing.
Chris Coward, from Notcutts, said: “The Royal British Legion does incredible work to help people in very difficult circumstances across the country. It’s been fantastic to see all the pennies add up to support such a great cause.”
Ben France, head of corporate partnerships at The Royal British Legion, said: “A big thank you to Notcutts for fundraising. Notcutts has been a very valued Pennies partner, especially in such a poignant year for the charity.”
