Prize vegetables are a winner for charity. Competition vegetable grower Bill Temple donates £50 of prize winnings to specialist autism care provider’s charity of the year.
After winning first, second, third and best in show at Dunscroft Vegetable Competition, Bill donated a portion of his cash winnings to the Goldcrest House charity of the year, The Green Team in Goole.
Ralph Parish, registered manager at Goldcrest House says: “Bill is a real friend of Goldcrest House, he gets involved and visits when he can. Recently he learnt that some of our service users volunteer at The Green Team, a local charity that provides horticultural services, a subject very close to his heart. The donation is gratefully received and will go towards ensuring the charity can continue and maintain its services throughout Goole helping the vulnerable look after their gardens.”
Based on Boothferry Road Goldcrest House is a centre of excellence dedicated to addressing the individual needs of adults over 18 affected by Autistic Spectrum Disorder and learning difficulties. It provides residential care, supported living, long and short term respite care, day services and outreach to meet the varied needs of those who access the service 52 weeks a year; its aim is to be the UK’s quality service of choice.
