BROMSGROVE’S Little Heath Garden Centre is epitomising the season of goodwill after donating two Christmas trees for the Primrose Hospice’s Lights of Love and running a Santa’s grotto for the charity.
The 25ft firs have now been illuminated in Bromsgrove, outside ASDA, and on New Road in Rubery as part of the annual campaign.
Little Heath’s manager Neil Laugher said: “We are honoured to work with such a wonderful charity which carries out such invaluable work in our local community.
“We hope by donating two beautiful Christmas trees that their campaign will go from strength to strength again this year.”
Sandra Albright said: “So many people look forward to the Lights of Love campaign each year and we are grateful to Little Heath for providing the trees that are shining so brightly in memory of those loved ones who are no longer with us.”
The free grotto will be open between 11am and 3pm every Saturday and Sunday from tomorrow until Christmas.
It will also be open from 11am to 3pm on December 22 and 23 and between 11am and 1pm on Christmas Eve.
Children will receive a sticker set, be able to sit on his sleigh, meet his reindeer and have their photographs taken with the man in the big red suit.
The centre now has hand-selected trees of all shapes and sizes.
The Lights of Love campaign has so far raised £22,000 this year – those wanting to take part can fill in the coupon on this page and envelopes for donations are available at all Primrose Hospice shops. There is now just ten days left for people to take part in the Lights of Love and the fund-raising team at the Primrose are confident of eclipsing last year’s total of £24,000 by the last day on December 15.
The remembrance books will be in place until January 6.
