It is hoped that the thousands of visitors and exhibitors at Glee 2021 will come together to show support for Greenfingers’ ongoing fundraising activities.

Anyone that has reached for the floral clothing – from ties to socks to shirts and suits – is invited to purchase a raffle ticket which will enter them into a prize draw to win fabulous prizes whilst, more importantly, helping to top up the fundraising total of the children’s hospice garden charity.

In 2019, when the first Floral Thursday took place at Glee, over £1,420 was raised for Greenfingers, with the array of floral looks bringing smiles to the faces of everyone who took part. This year, Greenfingers is hoping that even more people will dress to impress, and perhaps even set a new world record for the most people in floral attire at one time!

Director of fundraising & communications Linda Petrons,  said: “We’re so grateful to Glee for allowing us to run Floral Thursday on the final day of the show. We hope that the garden retail industry will get together and embrace the Floral Thursday concept. From a flash of floral to outrageous outfits, Floral Thursday represents an incredibly easy way to show your support for our work, and we are forever grateful to every single person that next week – if 2019 is anything to go on I know we won’t be disappointed!”
