Growing funds for Hope House Children’s Hospices

The annual charity plant stall on Tregarthen Lane in Pant has had another successful season, with the total amount collected this year for Hope House Children’s Hospices reaching £437.48.

Steve and Carol Wilson, who started the stall back in 2008 when it was part of a garden open day on behalf of Hope House, presented a cheque to Ria Wilson of the charity this week.

Since 2008, Steve and Carol have sold plants annually and the cumulative total raised now exceeds £2,930!

Says Steve: “As always, we would like to thank people who donate money to buy our plants, but also those people who have helped by donating plants and plant pots to keep us going.

“We have found that the stall is welcomed by visitors and residents of Pant alike and it’s thanks to the support of the local community that we have been able to raise so much money for this worthwhile cause.

Although the stall is now closed for the winter, Steve says he is looking forward to reopening the stall as soon as possible in 2016 and donations of plants and cuttings are always very welcome.

Says Ria Wilson of Hope House: “We are really grateful to Steve and Carol for all their support over the past eight years. It costs us £5 million each year to keep our two hospices running and we can only do this thanks to everyone’s generosity.

“It’s great that they choose to support us each year and we are also very grateful to the people of Pant for helping to raise so much for us.”

Hope House runs two children’s hospices, one in Nant Lane, Morda, and the other, Tŷ Gobaith, near Conwy.
