A Glee-full week for Greenfingers Charity

This year’s Glee saw record breaking donations to Greenfingers as exhibitors donated hundreds of stunning products to the charity. As well as stock from Bord Na mona and the New Product Zone, generous donations from Cadix. Woodlodge, The Solar Centre, Ivyline and many others who contributed to the Retail Lab helped to make-up the FIVE vans of stock which will be up-sold by Hillview Garden Centres, to raise money for the charity that creates therapeutic gardens for children and their families who spend time in hospices across the UK.

Head of Fundraising and Communications, Linda Petrons said: "On behalf of everyone at Greenfingers Charity I'd like to say a huge thank you to Glee for their overwhelming generosity this year.  The much loved Woodlodge fire pit of booze was raffled at the exhibition raising a huge £550 and donations received at the end of the three-day event will go on to raise many hundreds of £s in the weeks ahead. 

I'd also like to say a very special thank you to the HTA and Boyd Douglas Davies and his fantastic team from Hillview Garden Centres for working so hard, late into the evening on Wednesday and Thursday to ensure all donations were securely packed into the waiting vans for onward delivery".


The charity also took the opportunity to remind visitors and exhibitors to the show that it’s just six months until Garden Re-Leaf Day which next year takes place on
