A GARDEN centre is looking to award those who helped out in the community during lockdown.

Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre retailer, is looking to say a special thank you to ‘not your average people’ from County Durham who have gone above and beyond for their local community this year.

The garden retailer has teamed up with its National Charity Partner, Teenage Cancer Trust, for this campaign as together they aim to give local heroes from County Durham a Christmas to remember.

There will be a wide range of 50 gifts each worth £100, thanking those who really deserve a Christmas treat.

Nominations for people across the UK can be made via the Dobbies website at:
