by | Jan 19, 2016 | News | 0 comments

Over ?34,000 was raised at the Party for Perennial last weekend, and the charity announced its first Diamond Partner as the Worshipful Company of Gardeners.

Almost 300 people gathered at the Skyloft in London on Friday 15 January for Perennial?s annual evening of networking and fundraising. The amount raised at the event, which includes income from the new partners, tops the total from any previous event.

The new Diamond level in Perennial?s partner scheme was launched at the party and allows supporters to sign up for an annual donation of ?5,000.

Master of the Worshipful Company of Gardeners, Bernard Williams, said: ?We are delighted to become the first Diamond Partner demonstrating our support for this amazing charity. We look forward to working ever more closely with Perennial.?

Anita Bates, director of marketing and development at Perennial, said: ?The Party for Perennial is one of the most important nights of the year for Perennial and we were delighted that so many people bought tickets, donated on the night through the raffle and auction, and pledged their support in other ways.

?The party kicked off our annual HortAid fundraising campaign and it looks as though 2016 is already set to be a fantastic year in terms of the money our colleagues across the industry will raise to help us support horticulturists in need.?
