The company’s card range provided a selection of 42 different designs, with 10p from each card being paid to both Perennial and Greenfingers charities.
Chris Houfe, sales director of Great British Cards, said: "Our relationship with Perennial and GreenfingersCharity has been brilliant from the start, and our enthusiasm to create a card range specifically to support them evolved quite naturally. Garden Centre retailers are a specialist trading sector for us, and ‘Floreo’ was able to gain impressivedistribution countrywide, with consumers delighting in the fabulously colourful images and variety in design. On the back of this success we’re launching twelve new designs at GLEE with an autumnal/winter feel."
HTA chief executive Carol Paris, who is a trustee of both charities, said: "This beautiful range of cards has been very popular with gardeners and has provided consumers with the satisfaction of knowing they are helping support two very worthwhile charities."
Greenfingers fundraising head Linda Petrons said: "We are enormously grateful to the Great British Card Company and to Carol Paris for bringing this partnership together, and to all those garden centres who continue to support this fantastic fundraiser. The money raised really will make a huge difference to the lives of so many children and families who spend time in hospices."
Woodlodge, the supplier of garden pots, experts in horticulture products and gardenware, also raised almost £1,000 for Greenfingers through a raffle hosted at Glee.
Director Michael Wooldridge said: "The high level of engagement from this year’s GLEE attendees was fantastic and we’re thankful to everyone who got involved with the raffle. Greenfingers Charity is a very valuable organisation and it’s an honour to support its inspiring work again this year."
Petrons said: "We are delighted that Woodlodge once again supported Greenfingers at GLEE with the boozy FUNdraiser. It’s a great way to raise awareness of our work and the money raised will make a real difference, helping Greenfingers Charity continue creating magical gardens for children who spend time in hospices across the UK."
