Gardensite hosted a tremendously successful Father's Day event on Sunday 19 July, and David Coton was there to participate in the fun that raised money for the Breast Cancer Now charity.

Father's Day was celebrated at a special charity event on Sunday at our garden centre, with Breast Cancer Now benefiting to the tune of £200.

The local Sutton Coldfield Breast Cancer Now 'babes' were on hand and they were particularly keen on extolling the virtues of 'Time To Live'. This is a lovely pink highly scented floribunda rose and a proportion of each sale is donated to the charity.

Eagerly anticipated, a visit by 'Animals In Hands' proved memorable for both adults and children. Although you've seen these intriguing animals on TV, this was an opportunity not to be missed to handle magnificent snakes and majestic owl.

This was an unforgettable experience and everyone also enjoyed learning about the animals and how to care for them.

With a backdrop of the garden centre packed with summer stock including newly arrived hanging baskets, our Father's Day event proved very successful and, perhaps most important, the event raised valuable funds for a great charity.
