Carlton-in-Lindrick’s Old Water Mill and St Johns Church were in full-bloom for this years’ annual Flowers at the Mill weekend which has helped raise over £2,600 for local charities. Hundreds of visitors trod the garden paths to enjoy the ‘book’ themed sights and smells, with flower arrangements and delightful gardens on show at both The Mill and the Church.
The money raised at the event has been donated to two local charities, Aurora Wellbeing Centre in Worksop, a charity that supports people in Bassetlaw during and after a cancer diagnosis, and Freed Beeches, a service to support people suffering from eating disorders.
Anna Shaw from Aurora Wellbeing Centre was presented with a cheque for £1,300 from organisers of the event. Anna commented: “Aurora relies on the hard work and fundraising efforts of local people to provide our free package of support for people in Bassetlaw with a cancer diagnosis, and this money will be used to continue to provide these services.
“Flowers at The Mill is a fabulous community event and we are grateful to everyone involved for their support and this generous donation.”
Tracy Basdon, from Flower at the Mill, said: “This year we have chosen to help local charities that are very close to our hearts and we are delighted that the event has gone from strength to strength and allowed us to raise this money for charity. Thank you to everyone involved and to all those who came along.”
Aurora Wellbeing Centre offers a wide range of support services and therapies to help people undergoing and recovering from treatments related to cancer. These include counselling, mindfulness and wellbeing sessions, advice on skin care, hair loss, and professional beauty treatments.
The Centre is open from 9.00am to 4.30pm from Monday to Friday, and anyone who would like information about any services should pop in to reception or contact 01909 470985.
