As the garden retail industry makes final preparations for Garden Re-Leaf Day, we would like to take a moment to thank this year’s amazingly generous sponsors. The Garden Re-Leaf Sponsored Walk & Cycle Challenge will this year be supported by a range of leading brands, all of which come together to make the event such an enjoyable and exciting event.
Kickstarting the day will be the team at World’s End Garden Centre, who – as the walk and cycle start and end point – will be providing breakfast for all those taking part, as well as refreshments at the end of the challenges, helping weary souls refuel.
Once again this year, SBM Life Science will be sponsoring the medals. Given out to all participants at the finish line, these medals provide a memento from a fun-filled day, and help participants to celebrate their own personal physical achievement. Whilst leading EPoS suppliers, CSY Retail, will be building brand awareness with sponsorship of the lanyards, provided to every walker.
Woodlodge, long-term supporters of Greenfingers, have provided event banners, created on the company’s bespoke printing machines.
Watering gardening experts, Hozelock, are sticking with what they know as the 2019 water sponsors, helping to keep walkers and cyclists hydrated on their journey around the Buckinghamshire countryside. Whilst some of the snacks for the walkers and cyclists will be kindly donated by Tesco in Gerrards Cross and Aylesbury.
LOFA, have kindly confirmed the sponsorship of the post-walk/cycle drink reception, providing everyone with a welcome drink at the finish point.
For those who need assistance throughout the day, Vitax’s Mark Butler along with Greenfingers Charity Trustee Colin Wetherley-Mein will be on hand with the dedicated support vehicles, helping walkers and cyclists with a range of help or a safe haven if it becomes too much.
Finally, local Personal Trainer, Louise Goodridge, will be leading all the walkers and cyclists in a warm-up session before letting them loose on the Buckinghamshire countryside.
Our Director of Fundraising & Communications, Linda says: “We must say a huge thank you to all of our sponsors. Without their kindness and generosity, we would not be able to put on the event that we do. Being able to gather support and assistance from a wide range of industry friends means a huge amount to both us as a charity, but also to those children and families that benefit from the work we do – so thank you, thank you, thank you!”
