When Bents Garden and Homes’ forest of fresh Christmas trees arrived in store, the team put aside ten Nordmann firs and asked customers to nominate local causes who would love a fresh centrepiece for their Christmas decorations.
After more than 170 comments on the Facebook initiative, the following schools, hospices and charities have been donated a tree:
St Ann’s Hospice, Little Hulton
Children’s Society Shop, Culcheth
Warrington Disability Partnership, Warrington
Fox Wood Special School, Warrington
Penkford School, St Helens
Oakwood SEN School, Eccles
Leigh St Peters Primary School, Leigh
Glazebury C of E Primary School, Glazebury
Twiss Green Community Primary School, Warrington
Bents has also donated a fresh Christmas tree and decorations to Once Upon a Smile, it’s 2019 charity of the year. The tree is taking pride of place in the reception at the charity’s head office and dedicated bereavement hub.
Customers and colleagues at Bents have already raised more than £15,000 for Once Upon a Smile, with fundraising continuing throughout the Christmas period and at Bents’ Festive Family Fun Weekend, which ends today (Sunday 8 December).
