Gar­den cen­tre to back city char­ity over the com­ing year

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

A HAMP­TON gar­den cen­tre will help raise vi­tal cash for a city char­ity this year.

Dob­bies Gar­den World, Peter­bor­ough has an­nounced Fam­ily Voice Peter­bor­ough as its lo­cal char­ity part­ner for 2012 – a col­lab­o­ra­tion which will hope­fully help raise thou­sands of pounds for this worth­while cause.

Fam­ily Voice Peter­bor­ough is a group of par­ents and car­ers who are ac­tively seek­ing to im­prove ser­vices in all ar­eas of the lives of chil­dren and young peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties or ad­di­tional needs.

Mandy Wright, com­mu­nity cham­pion at Dob­bies Gar­den World, Peter­bor­ough, chaired the char­ity se­lec­tion team at Dob­bies which se­lected Fam­ily Voice Peter­bor­ough from a num­ber of ap­pli­cants.

She said: “Fam­ily Voice Peter­bor­ough is a fan­tas­tic char­ity with a strong com­mu­nity fo­cus, some­thing our cus­tomers and teams value greatly at Dob­bies.

“The work of Fam­ily Voice Peter­bor­ough 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.”

Dob­bies will host a va­ri­ety of events to sup­port the char­ity through­out the year, in­clud­ing The Dob­bies Big Gar­den Party tak­ing place in June, as well as prize draw op­por­tu­ni­ties and in-store fundrais­ing events for cus­tomers to en­joy.

Each year, Dob­bies Gar­den World, Peter­bor­ough nom­i­nates a lo­cal char­ity part­ner as part of its on­go­ing com­mit­ment to the com­mu­nity.
