Perennial is the only charity helping all those who work in or are retired from horticulture and their dependent families. We step in when the going gets tough. If your company employs horticulturists please consider becoming a Perennial Partner to help maintain our vital services.
Becoming a Perennial Partner allows you to support us through an annual donation at the level appropriate for your business (Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze), and as a company making an annual qualifying donation to charity, the amount paid each year can be set against profits for Corporation Tax purposes.
Being a Perennial Partner can form part of your Corporate Social Responsibility Programme.
Mark Gregory, Chairman of the Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) says,
“The more I hear about the work that Perennial does, the more impressed I am, and the more convinced I am that we should all be Perennial Partners. These guys support us when the going gets tough, so we should support them.”
It’s simple, just click on the appropriate Partner icon to make your donation or contact us to find out more.
In return we will display your company logo on our Perennial Partners page and our home page, plus we will send you a framed certificate to proudly display in your place of work.
Please pledge your support and become a Perennial Partner today.
A growing number of organisations have signed up to support their trade charity as a Perennial Partner. Below some of those organisations explain why they are happy to work with us to support all those who work in the horticulture industry.
The Worshipful Company of Gardeners
A new Diamond level in Perennial’s Partnership scheme was launched at the annual Party for Perennial in January 2016 and allows supporters to sign up for an annual donation of £5,000. The first Diamond Partner is The Worshipful Company of Gardeners, an ancient livery company, which can trace its origins back to 1345. It has been a long time supporter of Perennial. Their Master, Bernard Williams said at the Party:
“We are delighted to become the first Diamond Partner demonstrating our support for this amazing charity. We look forward to working ever more closely with Perennial.”
CED Natural Stone
“Our support for Perennial has grown over the past two years into a relationship we are truly proud of at CED Stone Group. From our involvement with the charity’s 175th anniversary exhibit at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2014 to our sponsorship of the Party for Perennial in January 2015 & 2016.
We are committed to helping raise awareness of and significant funds for the only charity that looks after UK horticulturists when times get tough. We think the best way UK horticulture businesses can support Perennial is through its Perennial Partnership scheme that we have signed up to this year.
It provides a much needed regular income for the charity and allows all businesses, of any size, to support Perennial at a level that suits them. We look forward to our continued involvement with Perennial and hope to play a part in its important development over the coming years.”
Mark Gregory, MD of Landform Consultants, talks about the importance of Perennial to the UK horticulture industry.
Perennial is the only charity that supports all those working in or retired from horticulture, and their dependent families. We step in when the going gets tough. If your company works in or supplies the horticulture trade please consider sponsoring us so that we can maintain our vital services for horticulturists.
Sponsorship is a great way to help us reduce our costs and a great way to for you to demonstrate your support to the industry, as well as being a fantastic marketing opportunity.
Here are a few examples of how you could help through dedicated sponsorship.
We have a range of leaflets explaining our services and how we help. These go out to every horticulture business and horticultural college in the UK.
Party for Perennial
We host cross trade networking events, with horticulturists from every sector of the industry attending (landscapers, designers, grounds maintenance companies, nurseries, tree surgeons and suppliers to horticultural trades). The next Party for Perennial will be held on 15 January 2016 at Skyloft London.
Special Garden Events and Holidays
We offer keen gardeners unique opportunities to visit magnificent gardens, meeting head gardeners and celebrity owners. These are private visits attracting a wide range of supporters. Recent events have included Buckingham Palace Gardens, The Laskett Gardens, created by Sir Roy Strong and Gresgarth Hall, home of world renowned plants-woman Lady Arabella Lennox Boyd.
Show gardens & Show events
Perennial uses show gardens at major UK flower shows as a way to promote its services. We have enjoyed great success in recent years at RHS Chelsea Flower Show (Silver-Gilt 2014), RHS Hampton Court Palace Flower Show (Silver 2015), RHS Flower Show Tatton Park (Gold & Best in Show 2015), Harrogate Spring Flower Show (Gold & Best in Show 2014), Gardening Scotland (Gold & Best in show 2014).
