British Garden Centre helps Greenfingers

by | Jun 7, 2022 | Chains, News | 0 comments

British Garden Centres has already achieved its first fundraising milestone since becoming a Platinum Partner of Greenfingers in January, when it pledged to raise at least £25k ahead of the charity’s 25th anniversary

TV presenter and charity patron, David Domoney, was presented with a cheque at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022 by Amy and Abigail Stubbs, daughters of the company’s joint founders.

Amy Stubbs saysL “It’s amazing to see our centres create awareness and raise money for Greenfingers. This charity means a lot to us, and we support them in everything they do. This money raised will only go on to help them create more magical gardens for children’s hospices.”

The garden centre has raised this money through a series of events this year, including its participation in the national Garden Re-Leaf Day on 18 March. This is a day dedicated to raising money and awareness of the work carried out by the charity and is widely supported by the gardening industry.

A further £5,000 was raised during the RHS Chelsea Flower Show from the sales of the new Hydrangea Red Butterfly, which was exclusively available to visitors at the show. This is the new signature British Garden Centres plant and £10 from each sale was donated to the charity.

David Domoney says: “As a patron, it was a great pleasure to receive this wonderful donation on behalf of Greenfingers Charity. The support of the entire British Garden Centre family really will make a tremendous difference to the work of the charity and in turn the families and carers who spend time in Greenfingers gardens.”
