Garden centre to back city charity over the coming year
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.
