Glee goes Floral Thursday for Greenfingers


Glee went Floral Thursday in support of Greenfingers Charity's special 20th anniversary year, The event, supported by Garden Trade News, saw exhibitors and visitors to Glee joining in the fun by wearing an array of floral clothing throughout the day.


All those taking part were asked to support the charity by buying a raffle ticket which was entered into a prize draw to win fabulous prizes. Over £1,400 was raised for Greenfingers.



GTN's Greatest Floral Team Award went to Evergreen Garden Care.


Greenfingers Ambassador Trevor Pfeiffer suggested the idea after getting so many positive comments while wearing floral shirts at Glee last year. “Every time I wear a floral shirt for work it makes people smile so if we can get as many people at Glee on Thursday wearing floral what a happy place it will be!”


Greenfingers Charity's Director of Fundraising & Communications, Linda Petrons said: "This is a fabulous new initiative which we hope will become a regular event in the Glee and Greenfingers Charity calendar.  We're hugely grateful to ITE and Garden Trade News for their support which will not only raise the profile of the charity but also help to make a difference to life limited children and their families who spend time in hospices."
