Listener wins garden make-over from Stodels

CapeTalk listeners were invited to enter the Stodel's garden make-over competition by sharing photographs of their dilapidated gardens in need of some TLC on the Facebook post.

The lucky winner of the R10 000 Stodel's voucher on the first day of Spring is Fiona Khan.

Fiona was over the moon. She explains that she entered on behalf of her wheelchair-bound daughter.

She is in a wheelchair and we have been struggling to do something so that she can get out into the garden and this is perfect!

Pippa Hudson says when Stodel's MD Nick Stodel heard Fiona's story, he wanted to go the extra mile. He joined Pippa and Fiona on the line and said Stodel's wanted to offer landscaping services as well.

Someone from Stodels will come in and help you with your garden.

Nick Stodel, Stodels MD

Today is Arbour Day and Stodel's are offering a free tree today only, if customers spend R17 on a bag of compost.
