A lively demonstration put on by Hitchin Flower Club as part of the town’s festival has raised £1,200 for Letchworth-based Garden House Hospice Care.
Gwenda Foster from the flower club presented a cheque to the Gillison Close hospice’s director of patient services Jayne Dingemans, flanked by other club members.
The money was raised by the club’s Fun with Flowers show at the Queen Mother Theatre during Hitchin Festival on July 17, when entertainer Neil Gurney gave a floral demonstration in pantomime attire.
Club president Sheila Wadsworth said: “All who joined us had a wonderful time. We thank Neil Gurney, who volunteered his time generously to the event.
“The hospice is a community cause that is close to our members, and we are delighted to raise an amazing amount to help the hospice continue its valuable services.
“The flower club is a friendly group. We meet every third Wednesday of the month at Church House in Hitchin, and we welcome new members to join us for demonstrations and workshops.”
