Purple Patch: Woolsery garden centre and restaurant keeps up support for the Chemo Appeal.

DURING the past few months Merry Harriers Garden Centre at Woolsery has worked hard to support The North Devon Chemotherapy Appeal, raising a total of £1,818.19 so far.

Halloween saw a ghoulish bash, with Ten Feet Tall supplying the music for an evening of good food and dancing raising £490.30 on the night through ticket sales and a raffle with prizes donated by local businesses.

Norman Wade kindly donated a superb dolls house he had spent the year creating especially for Merry Harriers to raffle off for Christmas, which raised a staggering £577.89.

In addition, Barclays Bank has donated £75, which will bring the total to an amazing £1,818.19.
