Johnsons donation helps rejuvenate Henshaws grounds

Johnsons of Whixley has donated £150 worth of winter interest plants to Henshaws Arts and Crafts Centre in Knaresborough.

As part of the 100-year celebrations, Johnsons is giving 12 donations in 2021 to charities across the local region.
 
Henshaws provides training, including horticulture workshops, for people with a wide range of disabilities.
 
Plants donated by Johnsons include Hamamelis, Skimmia, Sarcococca and Helleborus.
 
The plants will be in the sensory garden and other prominent places around the Centre. They will bring a splash of colour for the art makers and staff currently attending.
 
Henshaws Fundraising Manager, Gemma Young, said: “We were so pleased to hear Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre were the first winners of this Centenary Charity Giveaway. We can’t wait to see the blooms in their new home!
 
“Lorna and her team at Johnsons of Whixley were instrumental in the creation of the sensory garden. Their continued support means such a lot to the community here”.
 
Johnsons Marketing Manager, Eleanor Richardson, said: “2020 was a challenging year for many charities, including Henshaws, who rely on donations to survive.
 
“It’s great to support Henshaws once again. We hope our plants spread cheer amongst staff, students and visitors for many years to come.”
 
Johnsons have donated thousands of plants over the years. At the start of the pandemic in 2020, they donated hundreds of plants to local villages.
 
Other donations include a cash donation of £5,000 to restore their village church stained glass window. There’s also a donation of over £800 worth of plants to the Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford.
