THE mum of a Cupar teenager who tragically died of cancer three years ago has issued an appeal for donations for a charity plant sale to be held later this month.
Sylvia Wilson, who lost her 17-year-old daughter Jennifer to a rare form of ovarian cancer in March 2010, has already raised thousands for It’s Good to Give, an Edinburgh-based charity supporting children in the east of Scotland with cancer and leukaemia.
This year’s plant sale – the fourth Sylvia has organised – will be held in the car park at Tesco, Cupar, between 10am and 4pm on May 26.
Sylvia said: “It has been a terrible year for the garden so far and I know most of us are behind with our planting and other garden projects, but if anyone has spare plants of any kind and any other garden-related items they no longer need I would once again be most grateful to receive them for the sale.
“Plants do not need to be in plant pots. I am happy to receive plants in carrier bags and I will put them into pots.
“If you are throwing out any plant pots, and larger ones especially – don’t! Contact me and I will re-use them. I am always in need of plant pots for potting-up plants from the garden for the sale or to pass on to someone who wants to pot plants for the sale.”
Anyone wishing to donate items can contact Sylvia on 01334 654848 in the evening or at weekends. She can collect donations, or they can be delivered to 32 James Inglis Crescent, Cupar.
If it’s more convenient, people can arrange with Sylvia to deliver their donations to her parents’ home in Blebo Craigs.
