Supermarket bag pack raises funds for care home flower beds

CARERS have been packing shopping bags to buy elderly residents raised flower beds for their care home’s garden. Staff and family members from Willowdene Care Home, on Victoria Road West, Hebburn, spent the day at Morrisons helping shoppers with their packing.

The supermarket’s generous customers donated £477.61 on the day, taking the home’s total to £1,482.61 of their £3,000 target so far.

They are aiming to create a sensory garden with the funds, including raised flower beds and a potting shed.

Michael Beaney, home manager at Willowdene Care Home, said: “We have many keen gardeners living at the home and they’re looking forward to planting during the warmer months.

“Many of them can’t bend down to the ground, however, so raised flower beds allow them to get involved while stood or seated. 

“We’ve raised almost half of the funds needed so far, with the latest fundraiser being the supermarket bag pack at Morrisons. 

“A massive thank you to the staff and family members who gave up their time to help out. And also thank you to Morrisons for hosting us and the customers who donated.”

Willowdene is part of the Hill Care Group. For further information visit
