Bents give away 10 Nordmanns to local causes

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

Belong, Wigan

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).
