Cards say thanks for blooming great job
9:30pm Monday 28th October 2013 in News
AN artist from Upton has come up with a festive fundraising idea to help the efforts of the town’s In Bloom team.
Tim Dance is once again selling his hand-drawn Christmas cards at Upton Newsagents in High Street.
And he has decided to donate all his profits from the cards to support Upton in Bloom. The small group of dedicated volunteers behind the town’s awardwinning floral displays are celebrating yet another gold award triumph in the Heart of England in Bloom competition.
Mr Dance said he wanted to do something to say thank you for their efforts.
“I want to try to raise some funds for them in recognition of all the work they do for the town,” he said. “It would simply not look the same without them.”
Upton in Bloom chairman Jackie Surtees said: “Our sincere thanks to Tim.”
