“Proud to support

community projects and charities”

Inverness Science Festival at Simpsons

During 2016 we have supported a number of local community projects as well as fundraising for local charities. In May we hosted the Inverness Science Festival giving customers the opportunity to learn about science in their garden and in September we hosted the Inverness-shire Bee Keepers Association and their honey awards, a great opportunity for our customers to learn all about bee keeping and honey production.

As well as being an award winning destination garden centre, we are very proud of our local links, and equally proud to help and support local charities, schools and community projects.

In 2016, Simpsons Garden Centre, staff and customers have raised and donated over £11,000 for local charities and projects. Here’s a little about what we got up to…

HighlandHospice

In March we raised £1,000 for the Highland Hospice through our Gardening charity evening with gardening talks with out horti experts, food demos and informative talks with the HTA and our suppliers.

We also raised £400 for Garden Re-Leaf – the Garden Industry’s main fundraising initiative – raising money for children’s charity Greenfingers, who build beautiful gardens for childrens hospices across the UK.

Charity CHAS Rotary Donation In May we donated £1,200 to Rotary Club Inverness Culloden through donations made to our entrance wishing well. The Rotary then donated this amount direct to CHAS.

In July, we raised £400 for Children 1st, by donating a percentage of our children’s lunch trays sold in our Glass House Restaurant during the school holidays.

Throughout the year we raised £300 for charity from 5p bag charges.

At the end of November, we held our charity ‘Ladies Night’ raising funds and supporting Maggies Highland –  who provide emotional, practical and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends.

A great evening was had by all, from Christmas shopping, cocktails, pampering, raffle and a selection of local companies for everyone to enjoy – raising over £5,000 in the process for Maggies! LadiesNightKilts

Throughout the year we also support many local and national charities, local projects and schools by donating to fundraising events.

Keep posted on the exciting projects we’ll be supporting during 2017, via our facebook pages, twitter and in store.

We do our utmost to support as many local charities, groups, schools etc as possible. If you’re looking for a donation, please put your request in writing at least one month prior to your event, and send to our marketing department, Simpsons Garden Centre, Inshes, Inverness, IV2 5BA or email: siobhan@simpsonsgc.co.uk.
