Big Allotment Challenge Ferndale Festive Fundraiser Raises Record Total for Myeloma Charity

22nd December 2014

Ferndale Garden Centre at Coal Aston recently hosted a festive flowers and fizz evening with the BBC's Big Allotment Challenge's floral expert, Derbyshire-based Jonathan Moseley in aid of Myeloma UK charity.

Helen Watson, Ferndale's retail director who was a finalist in Yorkshire's Women in Business Retail Awards last month says, -We would like to thank all our customers for their tremendous support. The room was full to bursting and we all had a marvellous evening discovering Jonathan's tips to create our own masterpieces- though not quite up to the displays he creates for Chatsworth House! Together we raised an astonishing £1213 record for Myeloma UK, a cancer charity we at Ferndale feel strongly about since a dear friend of ours was diagnosed recently. Her attitude inspires us all. 01246 412763
