Who would like to win a Fortnum and Mason Hamper?

We have kindly been donated 3 lovely Fortnum and Mason hampers.

The hampers were generously donated to Gardiner’s by Porche Reading.  The daughter of Gardiner’s care worker Barbara is lucky enough to work at Porche Reading and we are very grateful for this kind gesture.

The hampers look absolutely lovely and are packed full with goodies:


  • Highgrove Organic House Marmalade
  • Highgrove Organic English Damson Preserve­
  • Highgrove Organic Cinnamon & Orange Shortbread
  • Highgrove Organic Salted Almond Chocolate Bar
  • Highgrove Organic Lemon Curd


  • Highgrove Organic Cotes du Rhone
  • Highgrove Organic Prince of Wales Tea
  • Highgrove Organic Milk Hot Chocolate

Much as the office team would love to keep these for themselves, we have decided to run a raffle open to the whole team.

We decided to run a raffle for the hampers amongst Gardiner’s staff.  We will be raising money for Leukaemia UK which is a charity close to Barbara’s heart.

Leukaemia UK supports those affected by leukaemia and other blood cancers.  They all help to fund effective research for better treatments and care.  Someone in the UK is diagnosed with a blood cancer every 16 minutes. It is the fifth most common type of cancer in the UK.

The prize draw will take place Friday 19th March 2021 at 12.00 live on Facebook…..

To enter, please visit our just giving page, for each £1 you donate we will add your name to the raffle. The more you donate the more chances you have of winning! How exciting! And remember, you have got to be in it to win it!


Congratulations to our 3 lucky winners Cheryl, Sandra & Katy.

We are delighted to say that £342 was raised for Leukaemia UK – thankyou to everyone who donated and thank you once again to Porche and Barbara.
