The Greenfingers Charity has sent a big thank-you to this year’s sponsors of Garden Re-Leaf Day...
The Garden Re-Leaf Sponsored Walk & Cycle Challenge was supported by a range of leading brands. Kickstarting the day, the team at World’s End Garden Centres – the start and end point, pictured –provided breakfast for participants and refreshments at the end.
Once again, SBM Life Science sponsored the medals handed to all participants at the finish. EPoS supplier CSY Retail sponsored the lanyards worn by every walker.
Woodlodge, long-term supporters of Greenfingers, provided event banners created on the company’s bespoke printing machines.
Hozelock helped to keep walkers and cyclists hydrated on their journey around the Buckinghamshire countryside. Some of the snacks for the walkers and cyclists were donated by Tesco at Gerrards Cross and Aylesbury.
Thanks to LOFA sponsorship, all finishers enjoyed a welcome drink after crossing the line.
Vitax’s Mark Butler along with Greefingers Charity Trustee Colin Wetherley-Mein, were on hand in the dedicated support vehicles and local personal trainer Louise Goodridge led all walkers and cyclists in a warm-up session before letting them loose in the Buckinghamshire landscape.
Greenfingers’ director of fundraising & communications Linda Petrons said: “We must say a huge thank you to all of our sponsors. Without their kindness and generosity, we would not be able to put on the event that we do. Being able to gather support and assistance from a wide range of industry friends means a huge amount to both us as a charity, but also to those children and families that benefit from the work we do – so thank you, thank you, thank you!”
