Will: You’ve helped raise over £11,500 for charity!!


Will GowingIf you didn't know already our very own gardening guru, Richard Jackson, is chairman of a fantastic charity called 'Greenfingers'.

This is a small charity which is dedicated to creating magical gardens for children's hospices around the UK, to support children with life limiting conditions.

Greenfingers has to date created 36 special gardens in various hospices – the charity is now in its 13th year and there are still many more gardens to create.

To continue its brilliant work, Greenfingers needs to sustain an income level of at least £250,000 a year. You may remember that Richard Jackson recently asked our QVC Gardening suppliers to donate a proportion on their sales made on Friday the 16th of March, as part of the nationwide Garden Re-Leaf Week.

Yvonne Walker, Richard Jackson, Harriet HardimanI'm very pleased to say that thanks to you for purchasing your blooms from us on the day, Richard was given a cheque for £3517.20 from Hayloft Plants and Kernock Park Plants (see picture left with Yvonne Walker & Harriet Hardiman from Hayloft

However it didn't stop there as more money was raised on the day from various other generous gardening suppliers, meaning that you helped to raise in excess of £11,500 for the Greenfingers charity.

On behalf of Richard Jackson and all at the Greenfingers chairty, thank you! If you'd like to find out more about the charity and Richard's involvement just follow the blue link above.

See you soon, Will x
