The Greenfingers team had a great few days at the annual GLEE garden trade show in Birmingham in September. It was a busy but productive three days meeting with garden centres, suppliers, manufacturers and horticultural industry contacts to tell them about Greenfingers upcoming plans and secure donations of gift in kind and services.
It was also a fantastic opportunity to really get the industry excited about Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day 2015 which takes place on Friday 27th March next year. Having all those industry big-wigs in one place meant we were able to get lots of people excited about fundraising for the event next year and encouraging them to get busy planning events and activities.

We were also extremely happy to raise much needed funds through our ‘Trolley of Booze’ raffle which was kindly sponsored by Woodlodge Products Ltd. Raffle tickets were sold for £1 each to be in with a chance to winning (and enjoying!) the contents of the trolley.
A huge thank you from everyone at Greenfingers to i2i Events who organised the show and were kind enough to let us take a stand there and let us advertise in the show brochure. We were delighted to find out just days after the show that i2i Events will be supporting us at GLEE again next year – we appreciate your support!
In total our efforts at GLEE raised over £1,300 across the three days of the event – thanks to everyone who supported us!
