The Sanctuary Point Garden Centre’s major financial sponsorship each year is the Code C Cancer Bus. The Code C bus transports locals requiring cancer treatment in Nowra to and from their appointments. The service is run and coordinated tirelessly by an amazing group of volunteers and relies on sponsorship, both financial and service donations from locals to keep it running. We know first hand that this is such a valuable service to our community and we are so proud to be part of it.
The Sanctuary Point Garden Centre is firmly affiliated with Variety the Children’s Charity, Greg is an ex-board member of Variety and both Greg and Kathy have regularly attended the annual Variety Bashes and Variety Charity fund raisers. Thanks to his Variety contacts and his knowledge of the Variety processes and procedures, Greg has been key to cementing the delivery of a number of Variety Sunshine Coaches to our local schools including Sanctuary Point Primary School, Vincentia High School and St Georges Basin Primary School.
Early in 2019 the Sanctuary Point Garden Centre, once again donated a full garden of plants to the G.J Gardner Freedom House. The house is the second house to be completed as a fundraiser for Variety the Children’s Charity and both houses have been fully completed by donations of private land and local services and trades. We are always very proud to be supporters of such an amazing organisation.
In addition to our major donations, we make multiple donations throughout the year to local schools, charities and events, these include but are not limited to the following:
The Biggest Morning Tea, Relay for Life, Aveo Garden Competition, Coastal Waters Veterans Lunch, Sanctuary Point Primary School, St Georges Basin Primary School, The Sanctuary Point Men’s Shed, Spring into Sanctuary Point, The View Club, Wild Life Rescue South Coast Inc, plus many more.
For the past 10 years, each month the Sanctuary Point Garden Centre has donated a plant to two local Garden Clubs for their monthly meeting. Visiting garden clubs and garden clubs we’re invited to talk at are also given plants to use as raffle prizes and fundraisers.
Not a bad effort for a small, suburban, regional garden centre.
