A plant sale and gardeners’ question time on Seil has raised more than £300 for a charity helping farmers and children in Malawi.

A grand total of £352.83 was made at a Seed for Life – Feed for Life event in Seil Island Hall last week.

About 60 people were in the audience to pick up top tips from gardening experts. Phil Moss, Lisa Robinson, Georgina Dalton and Maurice Wilkins were invited to be on the panel.

The Seil-based charity has already raised more than  £16,000 to help the self-sustainable food aid project providing farmers with seed and fertiliser to grow crops and helping feed more than 1,300 pupils a day.
