Our Plant Sale raises an amazing £775!

Gardeners who purchased a range of plants for their plots and windowsills at our fundraising sale last Saturday have helped raise £775 for us (May 11, 2024).

We held our bring and buy plant sale at CommuniBakes with the money going towards the work we do helping vulnerable and isolated people in Southampton.

Thank you

Emily, our Fundraising and Finance Coordinator, says: “Thank you so much to all who volunteered and shopped at our plant sale this year. We had a wonderful time meeting everyone yesterday and talking all things plants!

“Our volunteers all worked so hard, especially given the heat. Their efforts weren’t in vain though, as we’ve raised a brilliant £775 so far and expect more donations this week. It was double the amount we collected at our event last year and we’re so delighted!

Fantastic donations

“Thank you also to everyone who brought fantastic plant donations in for us to sell – we had a very broad selection of plants this year and more than ever! We’re indebted to the team at Communibakes too for boosting our team with some lovely hot drinks and tasty treats.

“There was such a lovely, friendly atmosphere and it was so wonderful to see so many returning faces from last year – both volunteers and shoppers! Plus, the bakery, which exists to raise funds for our charity, said they had a busy morning as well.

Surplus plants to buy

“We still have some surplus plants available for you to buy this week, just get in touch if you’d like some. They’ll also be outside St James Parish Church, by the park, for a few days this week, while stocks last.”
