A GLORIOUS Spalding garden opened to the public to raise cash for Help for Heroes has earned its owners a certificate and letter of acknowledgement.

Ray and Vi Abbott, who have lived at Park Road in the town for over 40 years and who have been tending the garden since the children grew up, invited people to visit on two days at the end of August.

They provided teas and cakes and, with donations from people unable to attend, managed to raise £300 for Help for Heroes.

Ray said: “I think it’s a good cause and they need as much help as they can get.”
