Speaking of Tong's generous donation, Sophie Lee, administration assistant at the Seacroft school said: "We're delighted that Tong Garden Centre have been able to donate a Christmas tree with lights. We are now able to provide the opportunity to create a Springwell family wish tree where our children and visitors can add their wishes."

Tong's centre manager, Andy Mears said: "The Christmas wish tree is a wonderful way of bringing families and the community together to share hopes and wishes and we're delighted that we were able to help.

"This wonderful donation from Tong will have a real impact on the families we support and help them feel part of our community this Christmas." concluded Ms. Lee.
