Host a garden party

Earlier this year the charity launched its Rosy Cheeks Appeal, which aims to raise

the funds to build at least ten new gardens at children’s hospices across the UK

over the next two years. As a fundraising initiative Greenfingers is now calling on

supporters across the horticulture industry to get involved and host a ‘Greenfingers

Garden Party’ across the weekend of 6th, 7th, 8th September.

It is hoped the Greenfingers Garden Party initiative will encourage garden centres,

nurseries and other horticultural organisations to get on board, adapt the garden

party idea to suit their own needs and raise money for the Rosy Cheeks Appeal.

The charity would like to see at least 100 business taking part, each with the aim

to raising £100 to help create more children’s hospice gardens.

Businesses are free to create a garden party that would suit their customers and

staff. Perhaps it might involve a cream tea promotion in the café; a family fete; a

cocktail evening for core customers or a teddy bears picnic for children.

Greenfingers will provide supporting marketing materials such as posters and flyers

to help promote any events.

Any business interested in getting involved and hosting a Greenfingers Garden Party

should contact Greenfingers on 01494 674749 or email

Promotional materials are available to support events.
