GROW’s supply of trees has just arrived and, thanks to a local financial services provider, every penny received for the trees will go towards funding GROW’s redevelopment project.

‘We were keen to support GROW with the work that they do to enrich the lives of people with learning disability, and celebrate the festive season,’ said Paul McCormick a Financial Advisor with Gower. ‘So sponsoring their Christmas trees ticked both boxes as well as spreading a little Christmas cheer.’

Stuart Smale, assistant manager at GROW said, ‘The six foot Nordmann Firs are non-drop, premium trees. They have a great form, and are just the right size to fit all your gifts underneath. This is the second year that we have offered Christmas trees for sale and having Gower’s support has been a big boost for us. We are extremely grateful.’

The trees are on sale for £49.99 and can be delivered by GROW. You can choose your own when you visit the site or pre order by emailing manager@grow.gg. Members of the crew will be on hand to help pack the tree in netting to keep it from being damaged during transport. When it’s time to take the tree down GROW can collect it for a £10 fee and this can be arranged at the time of purchase.

GROW is currently based at Avondale Vinery in Oatlands Lane while their permanent site at Les Petits Quartiers is redeveloped. They have a wide selection of plants and festive decorations on sale at the vinery, where the Crew are making up Christmas wreaths and table decorations.
