Updated 1:40pm Tuesday 19th February 2013 in News
A GARDEN centre is on the look-out for a charity to support.
Dobbies Garden World, Durham Road, Birtley, wants a local cause to be its charity of the year and benefit from its fundraising efforts.
Dobbies is encouraging local people to nominate charities for consideration.
Maz Coats, community champion at Dobbies Garden World, said: “After experiencing great success working with our previous charity partners, and the overwhelmingly positive response we have received from applicants this year, we would like to extend the deadline for applicants until the end of the month.
"Our customers have always been extremely generous in supporting our charities, and will do all they can to take part in our fundraising activities planned throughout the year.”
The closing date is February 28. To apply contact Jamie Grant at the centre or download the application form online at dobbies.com
