Customers at Wolden Garden Centre were treated to an afternoon of live classical music on Mothering Sunday – and raised more than £150 for charity.
The garden centre, in Cattlegate Road, Crews Hill, arranged for a string quartet to perform in it’s Greenhouse Café, to raise money for North London Hospice’s new Enfield building.
The musicians, who all came from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Barbican, played a variety of beautiful classical pieces, as well as some popular tunes from musicals such as The Sound of Music.
Generous customers, who were serenaded whilst eating their Mothering Sunday lunch, donated a total of £154.79.
Donna Gudgeon, of Wolden Garden Centre, said: “We are truly grateful to all our customers who kindly donated money to this event. We’d like to thank them for their generosity and hope they enjoyed the quartet as much as we did.”
The money will go towards work on the garden at the new hospice in Barrowell Green, Winchmore Hill, which is due to open in May.
