Squire's raises more than £13k for charity
The funds were raised by Squire's customers who kindly made charity donations in return for a free visit to Santa who was in his grotto across Squire's centres during the Christmas period.

Squire's deputy chairman Sarah Squire said: "Our free grotto was incredibly popular and it was great to see our customers show their appreciation. Our garden centre staff make their own choice when it comes to which charity to support through the grotto and we certainly agree that each local charity selected very much deserved the wonderful support shown by the local community."

The generosity didn't just end with the free grotto donations; three of the centres invited their local charity to exclusive previews of the new Magical Grotto Experience with Magic show, and the new Christmas Circus Extravaganza which took place at Squire's Garden Centre in Washington.

Lastly, a charity tombola was organised by Squire's Garden Centre in Shepperton, which took place during the festive shopper evening. "A fantastic sum of money was raised and it was great to see the team at Shepperton put their creative fund raising ideas into action," said the company.
