There was a special Christmas gift to Bethesda Care Home and Hospice from Maybury Gardens in North Street, Sandwick, this week.

A cheque for £2000 was handed over by Irene Smith and Alison Carty, of Maybury Gardens to Anne Macleod and Catherine Gomez from Bethesda Care Home and Hospice.

Most of the money was raised during the Maybury Gardens Christmas event on November 23 with the total figure being rounded up £2,000 by the company itself.

Maybury Gardens has been involved in supporting the work of Bethesda from its Christmas event for six years and also provides a Christmas Tree, bedding plants and other garden services to the home.

The Bethesda representatives thanked the staff of Maybury Gardens for their “extremely generous” work in support of Bethesda.
