Let’s celebrate #FloralFriday tomorrow, Friday 18th September for Greenfingers

Last year we raised over £1500 for Greenfingers Charity by having some fun and brightening the day with Floral Thursday at Glee.  This year we have the opportunity to raise even more money and add some floral cheer for the whole nation and beyond by joining in with #FloralFriday tomorrow.


Greenfingers Charity sends its thanks to all those who supported their #FloralFriday initiative that helped to keep beautiful flowers and plants appearing on social media throughout this difficult year for the gardening industry. 


Splashing a large number of pictures on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter ensured Greenfingers Charity remained in the hearts and minds of garden lovers and raised a very valuable £1000 for the charity.


As more of us have spent time at home this year, the recognition by the public of the benefits of gardens and gardening has never been higher. People appreciate their space and the benefits that nurturing nature brings to mental and physical health. Just like the benefits obtained by all those who spend time in the 58 gardens Greenfingers Charity has created in hospices throughout the UK.


If you feel the same – and who doesn’t? – Greenfingers Charity is inviting you to once again could post a picture on social media to mark the first anniversary of the launch of this fun floral day, initiated by Trevor Pfeiffer and Linda Petrons at Glee last year. 


The date to post pics of your best smile with a beautiful flower from your garden or garden centre, or wearing your favourite floral attire, is Friday 18th September 2020. To link up with hundreds of others from the garden industry please remember to include #FloralFriday and @greenfingerscha, and the name of your plant variety if you know it.   There’s a fabulous prize to win for the best photo! 


Linda Petrons Director of Fundraising and Communications at Greenfingers Charity reminds us that donating funds on #FloralFriday could not be easier, if you can, simply


text FloralFriday to 70085 to donate £5. 


Linda hopes that all those joining virtual Glee and many others will get involved on #FloralFriday’s birthday and on many Friday’s to follow! 


To find out more about Greenfingers Charity’s plans for the coming months, join Linda at Virtual Glee, at 3pm on Wednesday. A recording will be available on
