The Friends of Ramsgate Seafront group has received a boost with a donation from Waitrose.
The group were one of three chosen for the community scheme where shoppers put a coin in the box of the project they want to support.
The Friends of Ramsgate Seafront received the largest collection and was awarded with a £500 cheque from Natalie Dack, the manager of Waitrose Community Group Support Programme.
The money will be used by volunteers for planting at Winterstoke Gardens.
Group spokesperson Clara Gibson said: “We at FORS are delighted and amazed to receive a cheque for £500.01 which will be spent on plants, some tools and gardening gloves all to be used at the Winterstoke Gardens, where the volunteers have been working for 2-3 hours every week for nearly 4 years.
“We have gathered 1000s of bags of waste and given nearly 3000 hours of volunteer hours.”
