Squire’s Garden Centres has become a Perennial Platinum Partner. This partnership reflects the organisation’s commitment to the welfare of its staff and will see closer working with horticultural charity Perennial to promote a range of staff welfare services and advice.
Perennial’s Partnership scheme exists to enable organisations from all sectors of the industry to give an annual donation, which enables the charity to invest in new ‘prevent’ services as well as expert staff to maintain the high level of service provided.
Perennial’s corporate partnership manager Phil Swainston commented: “I am delighted that Squire’s Garden Centres has increased its support of Perennial through our Corporate Partnership scheme. This is another great example of how the industry can support the charity through partnership and by helping us spread our message that Perennial is here for all those working in garden centres and nurseries that need our help. Now, more than ever is the time to be aware of the impact COVID-19 has had on the entire horticultural industry.”
Squire’s chairman Sarah Squire said: “Perennial do such fantastic work helping those who are involved, or have been involved, in the horticultural industry and are experiencing difficulties. Perennial is there for their families too. We are proud of the support members of the Squire’s team, past and present, have given to the charity. Through them, we have gained some insight into the amazing work Perennial carries out, so I am very pleased that we are able to assist the charity further by becoming a Platinum Partner. Perennial give people support when they need it most, in a gentle and caring way. They step in when the going gets tough with bespoke, practical help. We are passionate about plants and gardening and, through Perennial, want to support those who have shared that passion through their work in any part of our industry.”
