Nurseries launch fund-raising plan
FLOODING Memories, an initiative selling plants to raise money for flood relief, have been inundated with donated plants from Pohlmans and Golden North Nurseries, meaning the project will continue for quite a few weeks.
Flooding Memories co-ordinator Margaret Wildsmith said she had arranged with Lockyer Valley Regional Council for volunteers at Lake Apex to sell the plants to commemorate the victims of the floods last weekend, with a good response from the public.
Flooding Memories have been overwhelmed by generosity, with one person from Forest Lakes delivering eight huge bags of soft toys and games to sell for the flood relief.
Fran Mills and Elaine Bonnett from the Laidley Garden Club, volunteered to help sell plants at the Laidley Friday Markets on January 21.
The group is grateful for the assistance of the Lockyer Valley Tae Kwon Do Society for transporting the plants and setting up gazebos for this project.
All proceeds will be used for the victims of Grantham and the Lockyer Valley.
