Topping fronts GCA campaign to raise £100k for Greenfingers

A personal plea from Guy Topping launches the GCA’s bid to raise £100,000 for Greenfingers.  Contributors will be entered into a Grand Draw of prizes.

With a waiting list of hospices that need the help of Greenfingers, Guy Topping’s letter to members of the Garden Centre Association refers to charity’s 2022 fundraising appeal aiming to raise £2,000,0025.  “These funds will ensure the charity will be able to continue to bring the gift of a garden to more life-limited children, families and carers who spend time in hospices across the UK.”

In the run up to this year's conference he has asked all GCA members to sponsor the Greenfingers Challenge held on the Sunday by donating £1,000 to Greenfingers. “I’m sure we can all afford this and of course it is tax deductible. Together we can make a huge difference!”

In return, each contributor will be entered into a GRAND draw for an amazing basket of prizes.
