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.”

Linda Petrons, head of fundraising and communications for Greenfingers Charity said: “We are absolutely thrilled that over 100 walkers and runners took part in this year’s event.

“We would like to say a special ‘thank you’ to the Cambridge business community for really getting involved and especially Scotsdales for its support.

“The funds raised will help Greenfingers Charity continue its work creating magical and inspiring gardens for life-limited children and their families who spend time in hospices right across the UK.”
