The leading online garden machinery superstore in Europe, which has its base in South Norfolk, has joined forced with Shelter, the homelessness charity, to raise some much needed funds for them at a time of year when they need all the help they can get.
Mowdirect, whose headquarters are at Morningthorpe nr Long Stratton, are organising an online auction for one of their top quality ride on lawnmowers and all the proceeds from the sale will go to Shelter. Anyone who wants to take part and fancies a new ride on lawnmower should go to Mowdirect’s Facebook page to make their bid.
The ride-on, one of the company’s own MD Minis which normally sells for £999, will go to the highest bid received by Wednesday 19 December. The company will the despatch it so that it gets to the winner by Christmas.
General Manager Stuart Drake said: “The idea arose after a discussion about our own Christmases and we couldn’t envisage having nowhere to call our own at this time of the year and so the idea began.”
