A Lasting Tribute
Barton Grange Garden Centre received a letter of thanks from the Royal Forestry Society (RFS) this week for their recent charity donation. For the month of October, Barton Grange pledged to give £20 from the sale of selected trees to the RFS in memory of Her Majesty the Queen who was a patron of the society for more than 70 years.
Union Jacks were displayed throughout the Plant Area to highlight the initiative. It proved a great success and were delighted to send a cheque of £1,640 to the charity.
Pat Sedgley, Assistant Services Coordinator at the RFS, wrote to say: “Thank you for your very generous donation. Please know how grateful we are, it makes all the difference for the projects we are able to offer.”
The RFS is an educational charity dedicated to sharing knowledge about woodland management. One of the RFS’s key goals is to educate young people and its Teaching Trees project works with children from deprived areas and helps them reconnect with the woodland. Donations also help the RFS continue its research into climate change.
Guy Topping, Managing Director of Barton Grange Garden Centre, says: “We want to send a warm message of thanks to all our customers who supported this initiative. The RFS does such important work in educating the next generation about how to protect our woodlands. We are delighted to support them in all that they do.”
