Holly is needed

Have your say

A CHARITY which raises money for local causes is asking people with gardens for a helping hand.

Church Walks Charities makes Christmas wreaths and swags and is appealing for donations of holly, with or without berries.

It is happy to do pruning and cutting work under supervision in people’s homes and this year will be raising funds for the Milkmaid Thursday Folk Club which runs folk sessions for people who may have had physical or mental health problems and the elderly.

The charity has raised £65,000 for local causes and holds regular plant stalls at Bury market.

It operates from 26 Church Walks and also needs used postage stamps, Christmas cards, plants and produce.
