Plant-athons planned at Klondyke garden centres on Garden Re-Leaf Day

Bob Hewitt, along with colleagues David Yardley, David Abbott, Ian McCavish and Eric Snowden, shall be taking part in six separate 12 hour Plant-athons to raise money for the Greenfingers charity on Garden Re-Leaf Day on March 16.

These will take place with the help of our staff at Byrkley Park, Houghton Hall, Stokesley, Lady Green, Garforth and Wilmslow Garden Centres where the six plant-athons are taking place at.

Greenfingers is a national charity dedicated to supporting the children who spend time in hospices around the UK.   The charity creates beautiful, well-designed outdoor spaces for children to enjoy with siblings, family, friends and carers, whether through play and fun, or therapeutic rest and relaxation. 


To date Greenfingers has created 49 inspiring gardens in children's hospices around the country and is currently in build at two more.  But they still have a waiting list of hospices that need their help now.

"I would therefore be most grateful of any donation to help support this worthy cause," said Bob.
