Perennial’s York Gate Garden will host the event on Wednesday 13 July. Broomfield Landscaper Challenge celebrates the life of the late Alan Broomfield, who leaves a wife and young son.
His family has been helped and supported by Perennial. A group of Alan’s friends and colleagues from Leeds-based Greenspace Solutions, now owned by Gritit, are raising money for HortAid, Perennial’s annual fundraising appeal.
The team hopes to raise £10,000 by completing the Yorkshire Three Peaks in July, Yorkshire Tough Mudder in August and Yorkshire Marathon in October.
Additional fundraising events will be hosted by BALI Yorkshire and North East region throughout the year.
Greenspace Solutions' former managing director and Gritit Grounds Maintenance director Adam Ralph will officially launch the challenge at the BALI Y&NE summer party this Wednesday.
"In December 2015 we lost a close friend and colleague," he said. "Alan was a pivotal member of our team who inspired us to work hard and play hard. It is our ‘thank you’ to the incredible team at Perennial."
Perennial development manager Kate O’Shea said: "We are honoured Alan’s colleagues and friends have chosen to remember Alan in such a positive and dynamic way."
