12-hour Charity “Plantathon” at Squire’s in Woking


Squire’s Garden Centres is taking part in a 12-hour “Plantathon” on Friday 16th March, to raise money for the charity Greenfingers on their annual Garden Re-Leaf Day.


A team from Squire’s will be planting up pots at their newly re-opened Woking centre on Littlewick Road from dawn until dusk to raise money for Greenfingers, a charity who create magical gardens for children in hospices to enjoy.


Come and see the team at Squire’s taking on the “Plantathon” challenge and cheer them on. The planted spring pots will contain a beautiful Narcissi in the centre with four Polyanthus around the outside, and will be sold to customers for £6.99 each or two for £12, with all the proceeds going to Greenfingers.


Colin and Sarah Squire (Chairman and Deputy Chairman), Martin Breddy (Managing Director), Ed Ridgeon (Woking Manager), and many other employees at Squire’s in Woking, which has recently re-opened after an extensive redevelopment, will all be taking part.


Then on Saturday 17th March gardening guru Charlie Dimmock will officially open Squire’s new look garden centre in Woking. She will also be planting up pots to raise money for Greenfingers – and who wouldn’t want to buy a pot that’s been planted by Charlie’s fair hand!
