Hospice requires urgent plant donations for popular Cream Tea & Plant Sales

30th May 2019

Lincoln Plant Sale 2017

St Barnabas Hospice is asking local businesses to donate plants for their annual Cream Tea & Plant Sales in Lincoln and Gainsborough.

Once again, St Barnabas Hospice will be hosting their popular Cream Tea & Plant Sales. The Lincoln event will be on Saturday 1st June, from 1.30-4pm at their Lincoln Day Therapy Centre, Hawthorn Road, LN2 4QX. Gainsborough’s Plant Sale will be on Sunday 2nd June, from 1.30-4pm at the Gainsborough Day Therapy Centre, George Henderson Lodge, Front Street, Morton, DN21 3AD.

Throughout the two afternoons the Day Therapy Centres will be open to all, where there will be an opportunity for members of the public to purchase a wide selection of plants. After its popularity last year, the Hospice will also be serving homemade cream tea to enjoy in their beautiful gardens.

Caroline Swindin, Corporate & Community Lead for St Barnabas Hospice, said:

“Our annual Plant Sales are always extremely popular and we’re looking forward to welcoming members of the public back to Lincoln and Gainsborough this year. Hopefully the weather stays nice for us.”

St Barnabas would appreciate any plant donations for these events, so please get in contact if you would like to help. Caroline said:

“The Plant Sales wouldn’t be possible without the generosity of local people and garden centres donating plants to support the event. We are appealing to local businesses, garden centres and plant nurseries to donate plants for us to sell on the day. Please get in touch if this is something which you are able to do.

For further information or to make a donation please contact Caroline Swindin on 07435 970 309 or email [email protected].
