Over the festive period, Forest Lodge Garden Centre chose to support Treloar School and College by asking customers to donate their loose change as part of the fantastic Christmas train display. In January the coins were counted and it was revealed that the Christmas display raised a wonderful £1,229.09, all thanks to generous donations.
The manager of Forest Lodge, Simon Hughes visited Treloar’s on Thursday 8th February to present their cheque to School students Phoebe and Felix, head girl and head boy respectively. We are very excited that the money raised will help towards building a new primary school playground for our younger students.
Charlotte Thomas, Community Fundraiser at Treloar’s, was very grateful for this kind support: “It was great to be chosen by Forest Lodge Garden Centre to be part of their festive fundraising and to have raised such a lot of money, all thanks to the generosity of Forest Lodge customers, is just wonderful. The primary school playground will mean such a lot to the students in the School who will be able to get outside and play just like other school children do – something that we can’t offer them at the moment. Thank you again for your support.”
We would like to thank everyone who shopped at Forest Lodge in December and donated to Treloar's.
