The Greenfingers Charity is delighted to have been selected by the President of the Sandringham Association of Royal Warrant Holders (SARWH) as his chosen charity.
Over the next year, The Greenfingers Charity will benefit from a wide range of fundraising activities undertaken by SARWH. This includes their annual charity event for over 250 members and their guests held in a marquee located at the end of the Royal Procession at the Sandringham Flower Show on 31st July 2024.
President Johan Huibers, who alongside his wife Rachael run Tamar Nurseries in Norfolk, has long seen the impact of Greenfingers’ work and how the garden retail sector has embraced the charity. With a number of royal warrant holders already supporting the work that Greenfingers undertakes, Johan felt that his year of the presidency was the perfect time to extend this support further.
Johan Huibers said: “I am so pleased to be able to support the Greenfingers Charity throughout 2024. There is no question that this is a wholly deserving charity, with great synergies with many of our warrant holders as well as my personal background. I sincerely hope that our fundraising efforts, and that of Tamar Nurseries, over the next 12 months will enable the team to continue to build such important garden spaces at children’s hospices long into the future.”
Linda Petrons, Director of Fundraising & Communications at the Greenfingers Charity added: “We’d like to extend our sincerest thanks to Johan, Rachael, and SARWH for their incredible gesture of generosity. Their support will offer value to our charity and work during this wonderful partnership.”
