  • 9/1/24.  Staff at Trevena Cross Garden Centre were recently able to present the Club with a cheque for £3500 following a very successful joint effort running the Santa at Trevena project in the run up to Christmas.  President Pete said, “This was a fantastic effort by a number of our members providing a memorable Christmas experience for the children of our local community, particularly after a 3-year post-pandemic gap in the project.  The kind donation by Trevena will prove a significant boost to the Club’s charitable work”.
