Friday 17th March 2017 aka St Patricks Day is a well-known date for many and for Greenfingers Charity it’s the biggest day of our fundraising year! On this day our supporters throw themselves into FUNdraising activities all over the country in aid of Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day.
This year’s activities include the Greenfingers Charity Garden Re-Leaf Walk which will be taking place in the heart of Cambridge with hundreds of Greenfingers supporters who are dusting off their boots and going the extra mile for the Charity.
The 10 and 20 mile walks will take place in the heart of Cambridge, starting and finishing at Scotsdales Garden Centres and passing through Jesus College and the Botanic Gardens on the way!
An army marches on its stomach and Greenfingers supporters will kick off the walk with breakfast followed by a well earned BBQ at the end of the day. You’ll be in good company too as experts from throughout the gardening industry will be taking part in the walk so you may even be lucky enough to get some free gardening advice along the way!
Every penny raised will be spent creating the precious gift of gardens for children who spend time in hospices. Since 1999 Greenfingers Charity has created 51 gardens for children’s hospices and currently we have a list of seven more gardens that we would like to finish in the next 12 months. Just 200 walkers raising £100 each through sponsorship would give us enough new funds to complete one more hospice garden.
So if you want to take your St Patricks Day to the next level this year, sign up now to join either the 10 or 20 mile walks by visiting www.gardenreleaf.co.uk or contacting firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
