This Christmas Halls Garden Centres raised money and awareness for a range of local charities including Sutton Coldfield Stroke Club.
Today Liz Topliss, Sutton Coldfield Stroke Club Organiser visited Halls and was handed a donation by Nathan Dodd from the Garden Centre.
This was on top of the money collected during two days in December when members of the Club had a stand and sold cupcakes made by the Garden Room Coffee Shop.
Liz thanked Nathan for all the support received from Kay Hall and the team when they were at the garden centre especially the delicious home made cup cakes which flew out.
We look forward to seeing them again soon to help promote this very worthwhile charity.
We received this letter from the Stroke Club on the 21/1/13.
