Tempting reindeer treats from The Gardens Group

Added on 04 December 2008

For the third year running, The Gardens Group is pleased to announce that it will be selling reindeer food in the run up to Christmas in its Sherborne, Yeovil and Poundbury garden centres. Each bag will cost £1 and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

Three mums from the Sherborne area, all with children who have the condition, have teamed up to raise money for the Trust. Anne Hall, who works at Castle Gardens and has a son who was born with Cystic Fibrosis comments: "Last year we raised over £1,000 for the Trust which was amazing, but this year we really hope to raise more, and I think we're on track as we have already reached £600. Thanks must go to everyone who has helped put the bags together and to the companies that provided the wheat, stars and the material."

Each little red bag is filled with wheat, glitter and sparkly stars and a story attached to each bag explains how to use the reindeer food. "Children sprinkle the food onto their garden and the sparkling stars and wheat attract Father Christmas and his reindeers down from the sky!" explained Anne. Bags of Reindeer food cost £1 and all the money raised will be given to the Cystic Fibrosis Trust where it will be used to help fund research into gene therapy.

Reindeer Food is available from; Castle Gardens in Sherborne, Brimsmore Gardens in Yeovil and Poundbury Gardens in Poundbury, Dorchester.
