Members of a Woodburn Day Care Club have been delighted by the generosity of a local garden centre.

The club, which caters for elderly people with age related illnesses, received a donation of bedding plants, compost and pots from Dobbies Garden Centre allowing members to take part in a week of potting.

Project Manager Janette Hope said: “We contacted Dobbies to ask if they would kindly donate some items.

“Dawn Gibson, the Community Champion at Dobbies, thought that this was a worthy cause and was more than eager to help.

“She agreed to donate 50 bedding plants, pots and a large bag of compost. Our members had a fun week getting their hands mucky planting and painting their pots. We would like to thank Dobbies for this generous donation.”
