Dobbies is face of charity aid

Lasswade-based Dobbies Garden World has announced Fight Against Cancer Edinburgh (FACE) as its local charity partner for 2012.

It is hoped that the collaboration will help raise thousands of pounds for the charity.

FACE is based at the Western General Hospital and raises money to improve the facilities for the benefit of patients there and the peripheral clinics in Fife, Edinburgh and the Lothians, the Borders and Dumfries.

Dawn Gibson, Community Champion at Dobbies, who chaired the selection team which chose FACE from a number of applicants, said: “FACE is a fantastic charity with a strong community focus, something our customers and teams value greatly at Dobbies.

“The work of FACE is extremely worthwhile and we know our customers, who have always been extremely generous in supporting our charities, will do all they can to take part in our fundraising activities planned throughout the year.”
