The Greenfingers Charity has confirmed that it will be exhibiting at the forthcoming RHS Chelsea Flower Show thanks to British Garden Centres.

Considered the world’s most prestigious flower show, RHS Chelsea is the place to see cutting-edge garden design, new plants and inspiring ideas to take home. Every year the event draws a truly global crowd, an audience that Greenfingers hopes to reach when it joins the show to promote its work creating therapeutic gardens in children’s hospices throughout the country.

Greenfingers’ presence at RHS Chelsea, taking place from 24-28 May, is only possible due to the generosity of British Garden Centres, which has very offered to sponsor the charity’s stand. Located on the Eastern Avenue (stand EA453) – the thriving shopping and information hub – the team from Greenfingers will be hoping to spread the word and encourage more people to get involved and support the charity.  In doing so, the charity will be able to continue its work building gardens for children as well providing their families and staff with a place for peaceful reflection.

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 summer. 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 be inspired by the work of the charity and in turn dig deep to support.”

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 really looking forward to get onsite 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.”
