A GARDEN centre is supporting two hospices as their chosen charity of the year.

Dean’s Garden Centre, with centres in both Scarborough and York, has decided to raise money for St Leonard’s Hospice and Saint Catherine’s by organising events throughout the year.

A spokesperson from Dean’s Garden Centre said: “Every penny really will make a huge difference.”

Naomi Blades, from Saint Catherine’s, said: “We are looking forward to working together in the year ahead and believe this will be a fantastic partnership.”

Kathryn Craven, from St Leonard’s, said: “Dean’s Garden Centre is a very proactive team with lots of great fundraising ideas - I’m sure lots of money will be raised.”
