“As Managing Director of Otter Garden Centre, I was delighted to be asked to continue to sponsor Hospiscare’s Open Gardens in 2022. We are very proud to support such a great local cause.

Otter Garden Centre has supported Hospiscare in many ways over the years and we recognise the outstanding work of their nurses in our East Devon community, as well as across Exeter and Mid Devon. Team members at each of our seven centres vote at the start of each year on which charity they wish to support. Thanks to a variety of fundraising events and the amazing generosity of our customers, our Ottery St Mary centre has raised more than £14,700 for Hospiscare in the last three years, a sum that I know will make a big difference to the local charity.

All the managers at Otter Garden Centres believe in the importance of supporting local charities and giving back to the community. We are therefore very pleased to continue our support of Hospiscare at our Ottery St Mary Garden Centre during 2022.

Plants and gardening are at the heart of our business. Many of the plants we sell are home-grown and whether you have a large garden, allotment or small patio, we want to help our customers make the most of their outside space and to make gardening accessible for all. Hospiscare’s Open Gardens provides a great opportunity to visit a variety of wonderful gardens in the area, enjoy beautiful plants, and perhaps get inspiration for your own garden. We are delighted to be supporting this in 2022.”
