Chichester-based Limehurst Ltd is supporting CLIC Sargent with a donation of £7,306 raised from its work harvesting medicinal plants.
Limehurst Ltd has more than 50 years experience in the harvesting of medicinal plants. The company has been harvesting Yew hedge clippings from local gardens which are then sold to produce cancer treatments. Payments from the company to the garden owners can be donated to charity, with any unwanted payments going straight to CLIC Sargent.
So far the company has donated nearly £17,000 to help children and young people with cancer, and their families.
Mike Howlett, from Limehurst, said: “We are delighted to support CLIC Sargent in its vital work with children with cancer - a big thank you to all of our customers for helping us raise so much money. We look forward to continuing to raise funds for this great cause.”
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Dan Powell said: “A huge thank you to all the garden owners and to everyone at Limehurst for their support for CLIC Sargent.
We rely on the generosity of our donors to allow us to carry on with our vital work.
"The funds Limehurst has raised over the last four years could pay for one of our CLIC Sargent Social Workers for nearly six months, during which time they could offer practical and emotional support to many families who have had a cancer diagnosis.”
