Horticulture industry asked for £1 per employee from Pakistan flood relief fund

Amenity Horticultural Services has launched the AHS Fund for Pakistan Flood Relief.

MD of the Sussex-based business Nick Guest said: "Like us, you have no doubt seen the pictures of appalling destruction and desolation caused by the recent and ongoing floods in Pakistan. This disaster has been described as being worse than the tsunami and Haiti earthquake combined.

"Here at AHS we wondered what contribution we could make, aside from the purely financial. And as a result, we have set up a fund, through the JustGiving website, for the benefit of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC). Through generous contributions from fellow companies in the UK landscaping, horticultural and forestry industries we hope to raise a minimum of £10,000.

He added: "These are worrying times for many businesses of course, but if each firm we can reach could see its way to making a donation of at least £1 for every employee – whether you have 4, 40 or 400 – then our industry will be able to present very proudly a seriously substantial sum to be very proud of."
