MIDWEEK Herald readers have responded to an SOS for plants - to ensure one of Hospiscare's biggest annual events goes ahead this year.

Eileen Rooke, chairman of Honiton Hospiscare, has received a good response after we published an appeal two weeks ago. However, she still needs more plants.

Without plants, there will be no giant plant sale - due to take place outside Honiton Baptist Church on Saturday, May 22.

A harsh winter, the coldest for 30 years, has been blamed for a reduction in promised donations for the event.

Mrs Rooke wants to hear from anybody who can grow cuttings or donate plants.

If you can help, call Mrs Rooke on (01404) 831866.
