Call out for gardening donations

We’re thrilled to be hosting a marquee at this year’s RHS – Royal Horticultural Society Malvern Spring Festival!

Our marquee will stock a host of re-loved and handmade goods – including fabric gardening accessories.

This is where we need your help!

We would love to receive donations of preloved gardening equipment – such as spades, watering cans and trowels – to sell in our marquee to raise funds for our care to patients and their loved ones.

Bring your donations to one of our shops, or warehouse, during opening hours, by Friday, 26 April.

Or, you can drop items to our donation container at the hospice in Wildwood Drive, Worcester, between 9am and 4pm Monday to Friday.

Calling all stitchers

If you are a crafter who could make and donate fabric gardening accessories – such as aprons, kneeling pads, bags, bunting and plant pot covers – to raise funds for St Richard’s, we would love to hear from you.

If you can help, we may be able to provide fabric for you to use. Call our warehouse on 01886 833743 to find out more.

You can take your donations to our shops or warehouse during opening hours, or, bring them to the hospice in Wildwood Drive, Worcester, between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday. Please drop your creations with us by Friday, 26 April.

Thank you for your support, helping us continue to be there for our patients and their loved ones. And, thank you the RHS Malvern Spring Festival for such a wonderful opportunity.
