We want to say a big ‘thank you’ to our gardening staff, Richard, Henry, Colin and Daniel for their work in the garden in 2020. They worked under difficult conditions, with the need to distance and keep to Government guidelines and regulations. At the same time, they managed to produce good crops and helped with the packs we sent to the trainees.
In December the gardeners worked incredibly hard, producing Christmas wreaths which people had ordered by phone. A staggering total of £813 was taken in sales! In December we took a further £175 in the shop ‘honesty box’ from people buying plants and vegetables. HOPE has shown that if the shop can’t open as normal, then we’ll learn to be versatile.
