Garden Re-Leaf Day 2022

Working together for Greenfingers Money raised and memories made from this year’s Garden Re-Leaf Day


reenfingers charity is thanking everyone who took part and encouraged their customers to dig deep for Garden Re-Leaf Day on March 18th. The final figure raised has yet to be confirmed but in the meantime Linda Petrons, Greenfingers Director of Fundraising & Communications says: “You really are the best supporters we could ever ask for!” Beginning and ending at Dobbies Garden Centre in Aylesbury, the Garden Re-Leaf Sponsored Walk & Cycle Challenge attracted 57 walkers and 12 cyclists who pushed themselves to cover between 10 and 100 miles through the

Buckinghamshire countryside. Hat’s off to Simon Mulholland from Westland Horticulture who cycled the full 100 miles and Colin Goodhand from Poplars Garden Centre who with his son Jack each clocked up 50 miles. The challenge began and ended at Dobbies Garden Centre in Aylesbury, Hozelock provided Instagram promotion and much needed water bottles bottles, while LOFA sponsored the drinks for the end of the walk. Garden centres too played their part on the day itself and throughout the week fundraising with raffles, coffee mornings, quizzes, a bake-off challenge and garden blitzes.

Dressing up, cycling, running, baking and quizzing to raise money for Greenfingers.
