Joe's Challenge Charity Fun Day

We are hosting a charity event in aid of Children's Charities, run by Joe Joyce, one of the Managers at the Garden Centre. In his own words:

"As many of you are aware my son Cameron fell ill in December and what followed was probably the hardest time I have ever had to face.
During that time, we had so much help from professionals and charities alike to get us through and back to family life. I vowed that I would do my utmost to give back to all those who helped us:
• NECTAR (North East Children’s Transport and Retrieval)
• Newcastle RVI (PICU / Ward 2A)
• Sick Children’s Trust (Crawford House – Newcastle) (where Sam and I stayed for 5 weeks)
• James Cook PICU
• Helping Hands – Harrogate (for their continued support at home)
• Community Care Team (Based at the Friarage - Northallerton)
• Stroke Association


The event will take place Sunday, September 30th, 10:30AM to 3:00PM at the Garden Centre. All proceeds raised from the Charity Events held that day will go towards the above nominated charities.

Additionally, the Garden Centre will be offering a 10% Discount Day* to celebrate the day.

The Charity events will include a cake stall, face painting, various crafts and games, including a Coconut Shy and much more!

The day will also feature a Hog Roast, our first annual Produce Show, and exciting exotic animals from Aquatic Finatic and Birds of Prey.

Be sure to stick around for our Grand Raffle, where hundreds of Pounds of prizes can be won for as little as £1. All proceeds from the raffle donated to charity, all prizes have been donated to the raffle.
