Staff at Spark received a lovely message of thanks today from the Marie Curie Hospice in Newcastle:

“Northumbria in Bloom awarded us Level 5 (which is outstanding) by the Royal Horticultural Society. Please pass on our thanks to your fabulous team who helped us achieve this.”

Our staff helped out at the gardens for two days in August. Our orignal post can be viewed here.

The Newcastle hospice is one of Spark’s 2012 nominated charities, and looks to benefit from a share of over £12,000 raised by staff during the course of the year.
