Bowcock set himself the challenge of raising £5k by running the Brighton Marathon on Sunday 12 April and the Virgin London Marathon two weeks later on Sunday 26 April.
He said: "I’ve done it! Every part of me aches today, but the support I have received from friends, family, colleagues and Perennial over the past few months, and the knowledge that I am raising money to help fellow horticulturists, has made it all worthwhile. I would urge anyone who is up for a challenge to consider getting involved in HortAid – you won’t regret it!"
Anita Bates, director of marketing and development at Perennial said: "Perennial simply couldn’t offer the range and breadth of services we have available to horticulturists without the support of amazing fundraisers like Nigel. He’s been an absolute star - training hard, completing the challenge and raising nearly £3,000 so far for HortAid. We have plently more fundraisers lined up this year and lots of events to get involved in. Early indications suggest this will be a bumper year for HortAid so let us know if you fancy joining in!"
Acre Landscapes will match all donations £1 for £1 up to the value of £2,500. Donations can still be made to Bowcock via his JustGiving page: https://www.justgiving.com/Nigel-Bowcock1/
