The Old Railway Line raises £1,470 for Greenfingers


The Old Railway Line Garden Centre, nestled in Three Cocks between Brecon and Hay-on-Wye, proudly announced that they raised a remarkable £1,470 during their Garden Re-Leaf Fundraising Day and Quiz & Curry Night, benefitting Greenfingers charity.


Retail & Event Manager, Mathew Lewis, expressed his delight, stating, "We are thrilled to have raised £1470 this year for Greenfingers as part of the national Garden Re-Leaf fundraising day. It's heartwarming to see garden centres across the UK coming together to support this incredible charity, which creates beautiful gardens in children's hospices nationwide."



The fundraising day was brimming with activities, including a Sponge Throwing Stall, Raffle, Plant Pot Pong, capped with a lively Quiz & Curry Night. Lewis extended his gratitude to over 120 attendees of the Quiz & Curry Night and to those who supported the cause by purchasing raffle tickets or enjoyed fundraising fun during the day.


Greenfingers aims to provide all life-limited children, their families, and carers, within their hospice, emotional support through the power and pleasure of nature. They create beautiful, well-designed outdoor spaces for children to enjoy with their family, friends and siblings, whether through play and fun, or therapeutic rest and relaxation.


With their commitment to charitable endeavours, The Old Railway Line Garden Centre is already gearing up for their next fundraising event - a Bingo Night in June in support of Hay Dial a Ride who are celebrating their 30th anniversary in service this year.
