A thank you from Greenfingers: Garden Re-Leaf 2024

Another year and another fantastic Garden Re-Leaf Day complete!  Taking place on 15th March, individuals, brands, companies and Greenfingers supporters all came together to ensure that this year’s FUNdraising event was bigger and better than ever.

To date, the Garden Re-Leaf Day FUNdraising total pledged stands at £50,000 with more good news pledged in over the coming weeks. From walkers battling the elements, to cake sales, raffles, quizzes, curry nights and the ultimate in pedal power, the activities were varied but all had two things in common – fun. Lots and lots of fun! Raising funds for the Greenfingers Charity and introducing the work it undertakes at children’s hospices throughout the country, was also central to the activities and helped to bring a host of new supporters to the charity.

One such event that was introduced to support Garden Re-Leaf Day 2024 was the Gardengram Ball, which saw 130 of Instagram’s gardening stars come together for a night of networking and good camaraderie that celebrated the boom of Instagram gardeners. With fundraising opportunities throughout the evening, including a raffle full of enviable prizes, the Gardengram Ball raised over £6,800 for Greenfingers, a total which will go a long way towards developing even more therapeutic garden spaces in 2024.

Kickstarting the garden season

The timing of Garden Re-Leaf Day is not merely a coincidence but has been positioned to help kickstart the spring season in garden centres. With shoppers flocking to stores with gardening on their minds, Garden Re-Leaf Day provides a fun and interactive way to welcome them back after a long winter.

This year the likes of Haskins, Klondlyke, Millbrook Garden Centres, The Old Railway Line, Longacres, Pulborough Garden Centre and all British Garden Centres’ 62 stores, pulled out the stops to ensure that this year’s event was a success, with British Garden Centres already confirming a fundraising total in excess of £15,000!

Linda Petrons, Director of Fundraising & Communications at Greenfingers, said: “The biggest thank you to every single person that took the time out of their busy schedule to engage with Garden Re-Leaf Day 2024. We are continually in awe of the support that we receive, and this year was no different. From those that took part in our annual Sponsored Walk and Cycle Challenges, to those that held events at their offices and warehouses, and all the garden retailers that made their centres a hub of Greenfingers FUNdraising activities, we are so grateful and can assure you that every penny raised will be put to good use in both our forthcoming gardens and those about to receive a Re-Fresh.”

Garden Re-Leaf Day 2025

As the team already looks ahead to the 2025 event, it has been confirmed that 21st March 2025 will be the date for your diaries! Taking place before Mother’s Day, next year’s event is set to see the return of the Garden Re-Leaf Plantathons, the perfect way to create plenty of floral displays ahead of this key gifting period.

Further details regarding Garden Re-Leaf Day 2025 will be unveiled at this year’s Glee exhibition.
