The Green Leaf Garden Centre members have used their unique creativity to support Relay for Life Dongegal. 'Wiggy', the re-cycled cyclist, is the invention of Michael Parkinson and members of the Green Leaf Garden Centre.

The team have also created the 'Fight back Tree' which will be a centre piece of the Relay for Life event next week-end. According to Michael Parkinson 'everyone enjoyed getting involved and making a contribution to the Relay event'.
