British Garden Centres raises over £15,000 for Garden Re-Leaf Day

In support of Garden Re-Leaf Day, the annual event that raises funds for Greenfingers Charity, British Garden Centres managed to raise over £15,000.


Held on March 15th, the family-run garden centre group organised various events across its 62 stores to encourage much needed donations for Garden Re-Leaf Day. From raffles, cake sales, car washes, tombolas, competitions as well as centre events, intrepid challenges to the summit of Mount Snowdon and 30 miles walks along the Kent coastlines, the team fully embraced the event to raise vital funds for the children’s charity.

Amy Stubbs, Project and Development Manager at British Garden Centres said: “We are incredibly proud of the efforts of our team members and customers in supporting Garden Re-Leaf Day. The stores’ hard work and customer generosity have enabled us to exceed our fundraising target and contribute towards creating beautiful outdoor spaces for children with life-limiting illnesses.”

Linda Petrons, Greenfingers Director of Fundraising and Communications added: “Greenfingers would like to express their sincere gratitude to every British Garden Centres store and team member for their exceptional fundraising efforts on Garden Re-Leaf Day. We are grateful for the generosity of the centres, teams and customers, whose contributions will enable us to build green spaces that enable families to create precious memories. The charity’s work is vital in providing opportunities for children to enjoy the outdoors and connect with nature and the money will make a real difference to so many children and their families who spend time in hospices.”
