25 Tree Donated across Bridport & Beaminster

Groves Nurseries in Bridport and Little Groves in Beaminster have been busy helping local businesses in Bridport and Beaminster spread some Christmas cheer this year.

The family run garden centre put out an appeal to ask local businesses to sponsor a Christmas tree to donate to local good causes.  They were overwhelmed with responses from the local business community who wanted to help. The amazing response meant that they were able to give away 25 trees to local schools and charities .

Nominations to receive a tree were taken via the Groves Facebook page and then 25 good causes were chosen at random from the submitted comments.

Managing Director of Groves Nurseries, Charlie Groves said “Every year we are asked to donate trees to local well deserving organisations.  We have always done what we can but this appeal has allowed us to work with some amazing local businesses so that far more good causes can benefit than normal”

“It was fantastic to see the pictures of the trees come back after we delivered them last week.  All decorated and taking pride of place in their new festive homes.  I would just like to thank all of the business that stepped forward to make this appeal such a success”.

Here is a list of the winning organisation at the businesses that sponsored their trees…
