A GARDEN proved its worth when it raised more than £1,700 for charity.
Davenham couple Ann and Doug Welch opened Springbank, in London Road, for the fifth and final year as part of the National Gardens Scheme (NGS).
They welcomed 280 visitors during the weekend and raised money through admission, plant sales and refreshments.
Ann said: “We had a fantastic weekend. I think it’s our best year to date so we’re going out on a high.”
The couple had raised £5,500 for NGS in the previous four years of opening, taking their total to more than £7,000.
