Across the country (and abroad even), garden retailers, groups and private individuals are actively fundraising. Woodmansterne, the greetings card publisher is holding a cake sale. The Gardena team has confirmed the day will be full of activities with their entire teams involved. Elsewhere, Alan and Felicity Down and the Tintinhull Open Gardens Group will be holding a Gardener’s Questions Time. Rob Jones, of The Garden Design Co Ltd is holding a grow your own workshop where attendees will learn more about growing fruit, veg and cut flowers. Garden designer, Andrew Fisher-Tomlin, who has previously designed Greenfingers gardens, will take Garden Re-Leaf down under as he joins in the fun from Melbourne, Australia. The QVC team will be showing their support with a special Garden Re-Leaf show on 16th March, putting the Greenfingers Charity in front of thousands of viewers.

Linda Petrons, Director of Fundraising & Communications said: “Thank you so much to all of those who are helping to put the fun into fundraising. You are all brilliant and I truly hope that whatever you do, you and your customers have the best time. More importantly, please know that you are helping to introduce the Greenfingers Charity to so many that may not be aware of us and our work, and it is this awareness that helps us to continue building our garden spaces. It means so much to us and the children and their families who enjoy spending time in a Greenfingers funded garden, so please know that whether it’s a fundraising box for spare change or the challenge of a lifetime, everything you do to promote and support Greenfingers matters.”

There’s still time to get involved

For anyone keen to get involved, Greenfingers has created a fundraising pack full of ideas as there is still time to get involved. The charity can offer collateral to help garden retailers make the most of the Garden Re-Leaf weekend, including t-shirts, collection buckets and posters. Not only a good cause, but Garden Re-Leaf is also a PR opportunity, helping to drive customers into store.
