Perennial selected as IoG's 2009 Charity of the Year

The Institute of Groundsmanship (IoG) has chosen Perennial - the Gardeners' Royal Benevolent Society - as its 2009 Charity of the Year.

IOG support will include fundraising at branch and regional levels and involve Perennial at events such as IOG Saltex.

Perennial is for people who work or have worked in horticulture but fallen on hard times offers help, advice and support people from the industry.

Geoff Webb, IOG chief executive, said: "While intent on increasing the number of young people entering grounds care, we recognise the profession's ageing population."

Debbie Lyne, Perennial's director of marketing and fundraising, said: "Perennial is becoming more known among grounds care professionals and we're grateful to the IOG for helping us raise awareness of our work."
