Fundraising Ideas

Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day

There are loads of ways to get involved, here’s a few ideas…

The Great Garden Re-Leaf 24 Hour Plant-athonUntitled design (92)

Hold a 24 hour Plant-athon at your garden centre in which customers, colleagues and friends take turns to continuously plant for 24 hours. Or, nominate ONE brave person to get planting for the whole 24 hours!

Start your Plant-athon on Thursday 16th March and finish on Garden Re-Leaf Day, Friday 17th March, the start and finish time to suit you!

  • Invite people to donate when they see the Plant-athon in action, or encourage sponsorship before the event
  • Up-sell potted plants whilst the event is happening and afterwards
  • Host Gardening workshops throughout your Plant-athon
  • Don’t go it alone – encourage colleagues and others to get involved

The Great Garden Re-Leaf Day Walk

Sponsored by Scotsdales Garden Centre, the 2017 Great Garden Re-Leaf Day Walk takes place in Cambridge so get your walking boots on and sign up to take part today, OR, if you don’t fancy the hike sponsor those who have signed up for the challenge.
