Sun­flower fund raises £26k

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Cash-strapped Commuters -

Hun­dreds of bright yel­low wooden sun­flow­ers, set in match­ing wheel­bar­rows, are adorn­ing gar­dens at Ash­ford Pil­grims Hos­pice in Hythe Road, Willes­bor­ough, and the char­ity’s two other hos­pices in Mar­gate and Can­ter­bury un­til the end of this month.

More than 600 sun­flow­ers went on dis­play on Sun­day as the cul­mi­na­tion of a fundrais­ing ap­peal which raised more than £26,000.

The wheel­bar­rows were pro­vided by Boys & Maughan so­lic­i­tors.

Pil­grims in me­mo­riam fundraiser Pauline Donkin said: “It was won­der­ful to wel­come hun­dreds of our sup­port­ers into the gar­dens of our three hos­pices. Their gen­eros­ity in sup­port­ing the sun­flower ap­peal has been mag­nif­i­cent and ex­tremely touch­ing.”
