THREE giant pumpkins that sprung from seeds purchased at a Stafford store will go on sale these weekend to make a pile of cash for a local charity.
Carol Procter, a teacher and hobby gardener from Bednall brought the seeds from Stafford's ASDA but was shocked to see the super-size vegetables, the biggest of which measures almost 60 inches in diameter.
"I never expected such large pumpkins," Ms Proctor told the Newsletter. "I don't know how they became that big, but they definitely attract attention."
ASDA community officer Sherif Hegazy said Ms Procter contacted the store about the pumpkins and kindly offered to donate them to be passed on to good cause.
"Seeing them in reality left me speechless," he said.
Mr Hegazy said he wanted the pumpkins to go to a good cause and they would be available in the Stafford store from Saturday for any charities, schools or nurseries to pick up.
