Scotsdales launches Year of Charity Fundraisers
Cambridge-based garden centre, Scotsdales, is kicking-off a year of charitable initiatives this March with two special fundraising events in support of Greenfingers Charity and Breast Cancer Now.

The charitable events get underway with ‘Ladies Night’, which will be hosted at Scotsdales in Great Shelford on Wednesday 8 March from 6.30pm to 8.30pm.

The evening will be in support of both charities and will feature live music, speciality alcohol and chocolate tastings as well as masterclasses in floral arrangements and scarf tying. Complementary drinks and canapes will be served while each guest will also receive a goody bag and be automatically entered into a prize draw to win a luxury hamper worth £150.

Tickets are priced at £7.50 with all ticket proceeds going to the charities. Booking is required – call 01223 842777 or email

There will also be several fundraising initiatives on the evening to boost donations. Scotsdales will be selling the ‘Time to Live’ rose with £1 from every rose sold going to Breast Cancer Now and Scotsdales will match it too. Special scarves by Jane Austin will be on sale with 100% of the proceeds going to Breast Cancer Now.

‘Ladies Night’ will be followed by the ‘Greenfingers Charity Garden Re-Leaf Day Walk’ on Friday 17 March 2017, which is being sponsored by Scotsdales.

Hundreds of walkers are expected to join in, with the option of either a 20-mile or more leisurely 10-mile walk. The walk starts at Scotsdales in Horningsea and passes through the heart of Cambridge, including Jesus College and the Botanic Gardens, before finishing at Scotsdales in Great Shelford.     

Scotsdales will be raising funds across its Great Shelford, Horningsea and Fordham stores in the run up to the walk. Public can also go to the Scotsdales JustGiving page to donate. To sign up, visit

Speaking ahead of the charity fundraisers, Becky Owen, Marketing and Development Manager at Scotsdales, said: “Scotsdales is delighted to continue its support of both Greenfingers Charity, which builds recreational and therapeutic gardens in the grounds of children’s hospices, and Breast Cancer Now, which dedicated to funding research into the disease.

“We’re encouraging both our staff members and the wider public to get involved and get behind these causes. Both events promise to be a lot of fun and memorable occasions.”
