Chichester organisation gives garden boost to charity

A CHARITY which creates gardens for children’s hospices has received a funding boost thanks to a Chichester-based organisation.

The Leisure of Outdoor Furniture Association (LOFA) has presented a cheque for £5,000 to the Greenfingers charity, which has created 34 gardens since it was launched in 1998.

LOFA chairman Eric Hopper said: “We were very keen to support a charity this year and we considered a few but picked Greenfingers to receive our donation. Its work creating gardens at children’s hospices is fantastic and a great example of what can be done to help those less fortunate than ourselves.

“We have also offered Greenfingers a stall at our successful annual Trade Show in Telford, SOLEX, free of charge as another opportunity to promote the charity.”
