After the pomp and ceremony of the Coronation, King Charles III encouraged the public to support causes in their local community in a nationwide volunteering initiative.

As a voluntary gardening team, Whalley in Bloom decided to hold a plant sale outside Whalley Post Office in King Street and raised a massive £248. These funds would normally be used to improve the village however volunteers were keen to donate the money to a local cause. The plan now is to hand over a cheque to Clitheroe Food Bank.

A spokesperson said: “We are very grateful to our many supporters who bought plants and we are delighted to be able to donate to others less fortunate during these challenging times.”
