British Garden Centres helping Greenfingers to exhibit at Chelsea

by | May 10, 2022 | Chains, Community, News | 0 comments

Greenfingers and the British Garden Centres Group have announced that they will be exhibiting at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show from 24-28 May. 
 
British Garden Centres has 61 centres in the UK, recently launching the 61st in Hatton, Warwick. The group has always supported Greenfingers and fundraised money for the charity through events such as Garden Re-Leaf Day.

Boyd Douglas-Davies, director at British Garden Centres says: “We are so pleased we are able to support Greenfingers by enabling them to have a presence at RHS Chelsea this year. The event is the perfect place to shout from the rooftops regarding the work the charity undertakes, with an attending audience that is already engaged with the mental and physical benefits of gardening. We’ve no doubt that the show will see legions of new supporters inspired by the work of the charity and in turn dig deep to support it.”
 
Sue Allen, chairman at the Greenfingers charity adds: “Our sincerest thanks to British Garden Centres for their support in helping us gain a presence at RHS Chelsea. We are looking forward to getting on-site and start telling all the wonderful visitors more about the work we do and hope that many of them will consider making Greenfingers their charity of choice.”
 
Their exhibit will be located on Eastern Avenue (stand EA453), the shopping and information hub of the show. Greenfingers and the British Garden Centres teams are hoping to spread the word and encourage more people to get involved and support the charity. 
 
Greenfingers is a national charity dedicated to supporting life-limited children and their families who spend time in hospices around the UK. The charity is committed to creating outdoor spaces for children to enjoy with family, friends, and siblings, whether through play and fun, or therapeutic rest and relaxation. To date, Greenfingers Charity has created more than 60 inspiring gardens in children’s hospices around the country and has a further waiting list of hospices that need help.
