Perrywood Tiptree is delighted to have raised and donated £12,500 to chosen charities in 2023. This includes donations to Abberton Rural Training, Hope for Tomorrow and Greenfingers Charity. These organisations are very closely linked to the Perrywood vision to inspire people of all ages to get more plants in their lives and enjoy gardens and gardening.
Money was raised throughout the year across a range of activities including a quiz night, an afternoon tea, raffles, a staff Christmas jumper day, as well as talks to gardening groups.
Over £4,600 of the overall total was raised by the Coffee Shop & Restaurant team. They encouraged our fantastic customers to donate enough money for us to purchase a new fridge for mobile cancer unit ‘Maureen’, with the extra going towards new chemotherapy chairs.
Perrywood also donated over £7,000 worth of plants, gardening equipment and gift vouchers to local schools, charities and community groups.
