A CHARITY in Haywards Heath has received a donation from Tates of Sussex.

John MacCrae, the centre manager from Age UK, received the plants and compost donated by Tates of Sussex, for the new centre’s patio area.

He said: ‘’Our activity centre in Haywards Heath provides a wide variety of classes and hobby activities for those loving later life.

“We have a beautiful garden café, that could not be such an inviting place without the generous donations and support of our volunteers and commercial supporters like Paradise Park.”

Mark Curtis from Tates said: “Adding a touch of nature’s colour can make such a difference to an outdoor space.”
