We would like to say a huge thank you to the 70 volunteers that helped us over the October half term at Chessington Garden Centre in Surrey.
Our team of enthusiastic volunteers, a mix of children, adults, students and corporate teams, provided spooky fundraising games for families in exchange for donations, including face-painting, pumpkin hunts and a ‘Slime-bola’.
Regional Fundraiser Gaby Richardson who organized the event said:
“It was an amazing 8 days with people from all sides of the community helping out for the week. We had loads of prizes, sweets and scary faces being painted. Even though it was our Halloween week it definitely got people looking forward to Christmas with the garden centres decorations already up and shining bright. We are already looking forward to Easter at Chessington in 2020”
A total of £3700 was raised which is fantastic. Thank you to everyone who helped.
