Last call for outstanding Garden Re-Leaf collections

Garden centre charity campaign Garden Re-Leaf has urged fundraisers to hand in any outstanding fund raising cheques.

More than 230 garden centres took part in Garden Re-Leaf this year, staging fundraising activities such as celebrity gardening talks, quizzes and treasure hunts, all for the Greenfingers charity.  Suppliers also got involved by buying on-pack promotional stickers to show how much would be donated with each sale.  

Founder Boyd Douglas-Davies said plans to announce the total raised at the forthcoming GIMA Awards ceremony. "We will be presenting a complete figure of all monies raised on the night, so I am asking fundraisers with outstanding donations to contact us directly to make sure they are included in the grand total."

He added: "The Garden Re-Leaf team and I are so very grateful to everyone who took part.  Garden Re-Leaf Day 2014 will specifically benefit the Greenfingers ‘Rosy Cheeks’ appeal; a campaign designed to raise £750,000 over two years.  The money raised will allow Greenfingers to create magical gardens in which children with life-threatening illnesses can spend precious time with their families."

Plans for next year’s Garden Re-Leaf Day will be announced at the GIMA Awards on the 17 July 2014.

Outstanding donations should be made payable to Greenfingers Charity – Garden Re-Leaf, and sent as soon as possible to the Greenfingers offices.  In addition, the value of these payments should be confirmed directly to Sarah Lioveri, Greenfingers Fundraising and Administration Officer. She can be reached by telephone; 01494 674749, or by email;
