The day has become fundamental to Greenfingers' fundraising activities as it has meant that six gardens have been created from the £175,000 raised from Garden Re-Leaf events alone.
Some 2,000 families and children who use children’s hospices have benefited from the installation of the outdoor spaces.
Town & Country handed over a cheque for £7,300 to Greenfingers at the recent Garden Press Event after running a fundraising campaign.
In 2015 Greenfingers specifically needs to fund a grow your own garden and an urban family garden.
The day is now known as 'Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day', to reinforce the charitable focus of the day and its significance to Greenfingers’ fundraising strategy.
Founder of Garden Re-Leaf Day, Boyd Douglas-Davies, is now a trustee of Greenfinger.
Douglas-Davies said: "Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day 2015 is an unmissable opportunity to get customers in store earlier, kick-starting the peak season and raising money to boot. Now is the perfect time to get involved, and really create a buzz within the garden centre, hosting creative events that benefit Greenfingers and encourage team building."
A new version of the website, was launched to help make it easier for garden centres to register their events. See www.gardenreleaf.co.uk.
