A Cambridgeshire garden centre has helped raise £22,500 for the Greenfingers Charity with a special charity walk.
Scotsdales, which has centres in Fordham and Great Shelford, raise the impressive sum thanks to their third annual Garden Re-Leaf Day Walk, which saw more than 100 walkers and runners take on 10 and 20-mile courses.
They travelled through Horningsea before making their way through Cambridge and finishing at Scotsdales in Great Shelford.
Becky Owen, marketing and development manager at Scotsdales, said: “It was a pleasure to sponsor and host the Greenfingers Charity this year.
“It’s a brilliant charity that builds recreational and therapeutic gardens in the grounds of children’s hospices so it was wonderful to see so many turn out and help to fundraise over £22,000.”
