It was with great sadness that the Pilkington Horticultural Society agreed at its recent Annual General Meeting to close down their society. Under the terms of the constitution of the Society any existing monies must be donated to nominated charities. As a result of this ruling the committee of the PHS chose to donate a very generous £3315 to the Steve Prescott Foundation. The PH Society managed the allotments in St Helens which were originally set up for ex employees of Pilkington Glass.
The SPF is very touched to be nominated as one of the chosen charities and the very kind donation will take the SPF closer to the Million Pound milestone of donations to The Christie Hospital, the Rugby League Benevolent Fund and the SPF Special Causes Fund. Each of these charities continues to help others thanks to the donations we receive and are making a difference to people's lives.
Sincere thanks from all at the SPF to Pilkington Horticultural Society for choosing the SPF as the charity for their extremely kind donation.
