Town & Country returns to the world’s most famous flower show next week – its 23rd consecutive visit – and will be using the occasion to announce the final tally of its recent fundraising efforts for the small national charity Greenfingers.
It all started when the company pledged to donate 25 pence for every pair of gardening gloves sold on Garden Re-Leaf Day 2015, which took place on Friday 27th March, to Greenfingers – the charity dedicated to supporting the children who spend time in hospices around the UK, along with their families, by creating inspiring gardens and outdoor spaces for them to relax in and enjoy.
It has been confirmed that a total of 8,420 pairs of Town & Country gardening gloves were sold on that single day – raising an impressive £2105 for the charity. A cheque will be handed over to Matthew Wilson, Chairman of Greenfingers, on the Town & Country stand (Eastern Avenue EA30) on press day, Monday, 18th May.
Linda Petrons Head of Fundraising at Greenfingers commented: “Town & Country has long been a supporter of Greenfingers and we already have a lot to thank them for. This latest fund-raising initiative comes after an already generous donation of £7,000, which was made earlier this year. We would like to thank them for their ongoing support. Fantastic contributions like these are vital if we are to continue our much valued work.”
