Growers brought their allotment to Winsford Cross Shopping Centre on Saturday to support people living with cancer and families who need emergency food.

Allotment chairman Mike Allen said: “It was a great success and the residents of Winsford and beyond kept our team of volunteers busy from start to finish. We even had customers choosing plants while we were still setting up!

“We brought more plants and hanging baskets than in previous years and by the end of the day the tables were bare and we’d as good as sold out.

“Not only has the sale raised funds for our group, but it’s helped support our charity partners, St Luke’s Hospice and Mid-Cheshire Foodbank.

"It’s great to know that the plants we’ve grown now have new homes in and around Winsford!"
