One feature, though, will be a raffle, which has, so far, received donations from Dobbies Gardens Centre, Bell Brothers Nurseries, The White Hart, Boston Golf Club, Bloon Away Boston, Ali’s Balloon Creations, and Summers Creative Cakes. Strips cost £1 and are on sale in-store now.

Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to UNICEF and its work to support children in the Ukraine.

Sales manager, James Chalkley, said: “As a store, we wanted to play our part to help those in need and to be a beacon for the community at this current time.”
