GARDENING expert Christine Walkden is lending her support to the blooming marvellous St Clare Hospice Spring Raffle.

Mrs Walkden is urging local people to dig deep for the local hospice by buying tickets for the draw, which has a top prize of £2,000.

The resident gardener on BBC’s The One Show said: “What would I do with £2,000? I’d probably give it to a friend who needs it more than me – I’m quite content with what I’ve got but it could make a real difference to someone!”

Mrs Walkden will draw the winning ticket on March 28 at the hospice in Hastingwood.

Tickets for the Spring Raffle cost £1 each and can be bought from the hospice’s shop’s on Dunmow’s High Street, or Mercer Street in Saffron Walden.

The raffle closes on March 22.
