ELMS Bank School and Unsworth Community Hub will be holding a number of charity plant sales to raise funds towards the creation of a Garden of Reflection at the school.

The sales take place on Sunday, from 10am to 2pm at the school and from 10am to 2pm next Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at Unsworth Community Hub.

Students have been keeping their green fingers busy by planting seeds, watering seedlings and potting cuttings to get everything ready.

Bedding plants, herbs, houseplants, vegetables, sweet peas, nasturtiums, fuchsias, flowering geraniums and much more will be available.

All proceeds will go towards a Garden of Reflection at Elms Bank in memory of teacher Adam Foster, who died from cancer last year.

Adam was a well-loved part of the teaching team at the school for over 15 years.

An Elms Bank spokesman said: “The Garden of Reflection will be a place where pupils, staff and his family can remember Adam and other colleagues and pupils we have sadly lost over the years.

“Fundraising towards the Garden of Reflection project has been going on for a few months. Our Just Giving page has raised over £1,000 towards to the total costs.”

Unsworth Community Hub will also be running a bric-a-brac stall and takeaway hot and cold drinks and snacks will be available to purchase.

The plant sale has been supported by generous donations from Morrisons Whitefield, B&Q Bury, Tesco, Walnut Allotments, Incredible Edibles Prestwich and the staff of Elms Bank School and the volunteers from Unsworth Community Hub.
