To add an exciting sense of competition to this year’s Garden Re-Leaf, Greenfingers Charity has confirmed that there are two tickets to its glittering Charity Summer Ball up for grabs for the garden centre which raises the most over the Garden Re-Leaf weekend (Friday 13th – Sunday 15th March 2020).
The Greenfingers’ Charity Summer Ball has been newly introduced for 2020 and will take place at the Barton Grange Hotel on June 25th. This exclusive black-tie event will welcome over 150 guests for a night of fundraising, dining, bubbles and networking. Tickets have recently gone on sale priced at £95 each, making this fundraising incentive even sweeter!
Linda Petrons, Director of Fundraising & Communications said: “From quizzes and cake sales, plantathons and café donations, to tombolas, sponsored walks and ‘going green for Greenfingers’ the efforts that our garden retail supporters undertake is just awe inspiring. This year, to make things even more exciting with a sense of friendly competition, we’d like to give the top fundraising centre two highly in-demand tickets to our forthcoming Charity Summer Ball. We hope this gesture might entice even more garden centres to get involved and connect with Garden Re-Leaf this year.”

Getting involved in Garden Re-Leaf couldn’t be easier. Greenfingers has created fundraising packs that can be downloaded from www.greenfingerscharity.org.uk/gardenreleaf. These packs are full of ideas regarding how garden centres can make the Garden Re-Leaf weekend a family-friendly and fun fundraising event.
The charity also offers a wealth of additional collateral that can help garden retailers to make the most of the Garden Re-Leaf weekend, including t-shirts, collection buckets and posters to name but a few. Garden Re-Leaf is also a great local PR opportunity which helps to drive customers into store, and, again, Greenfingers can offer support to maximise this with draft news releases, and advice on which media to contact.
Garden centres already confirmed to participate in Garden Re-Leaf 2020 include Ayletts, Altons Garden Centre, The Old Railway Line, Longacres, Perrywood and Haskins, with many more expected to sign up over the coming weeks.
