Work colleagues of a young mum who died after a battle against cancer raised more than £300 in her honour at an annual garden event.
Alison Gobey, 37, died from stomach cancer last year, leaving husband Wayne, 38, and their 28-month-old-son Samuel.
The mother-of-one was a keen horticulturalist and colleagues and friends dedicated their open garden event this year to her.
They opened a private garden up to the public as part of the National Gardens Scheme at 9 Main Street, Horsley Woodhouse, on Sunday, August 3.
Wayne, of Westminster Drive, Church Gresley, attended the event in honour of Alison and said it was a huge success.
The 38-year-old said: “There was a record number of visitors this year, 159 I believe. People made such generous donations, so I would like to thank everyone that got involved – Alison would have loved it.”
The £332.69 raised will go to Perennial, the Gardeners’ Royal Benevolent Society – a cause close to Alison’s heart.
