Christmas comes early to Dobbies

Have your say

Christmas is coming early to Dobbies Garden World in Lasswade, which is hosting a festive charity evening to raise funds for Action for Children.

The event, to be held on Thursday, October 13 from 5pm to 9pm, will kickstart a campaign to raise more than £30,000 so the charity can help the UK’s most vulnerable, disadvantaged and neglected children and young people.

The funds will go towards giving vulnerable children a variety of unforgettable outings and activities, such as an outing to the cinema, an overnight trip to a discovery centre or a day out at the safari park.

For many of the children and young people, these treats would be otherwise impossible.

The event will feature live demonstrations, children’s entertainment and live music.

Tickets are £1 and include a mince pie and refreshment on arrival with all proceeds from ticket sales going to Action for Children.
