Last year, the Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day walk raised over ?9,000, thanks to participants from trade organisations, suppliers, journalists and others in the garden industry.
This year, the walk covers approximately 20 miles, starting and finishing at the HTA?s offices in Theale, West Berkshire. Taking place on Garden Re-Leaf Day – 18th March – the walk is just one of many events happening in aid of the charity.
So far, Greenfingers? Matthew Mein, along with colleagues from i2i, GIMA Director Vicky Nuttall, Kimberley Hornby and Robbie Cumming from Hornby Whitefoot PR have all signed up to take part in the challenge.
Linda Petrons, head of fundraising at Greenfingers said: ?The walk is open to absolutely everyone working in or alongside the garden industry. Not only is it a great opportunity to raise funds for those not already involved in Garden Re-Leaf Day events, it?s fun, team building and a great way to spend time with colleagues and acquaintances away from the office.?
All of the money raised this year will go towards Greenfingers? ?A Million Moments Appeal?. The charity aims to raise ?1 million.
