Summer ‘thank you’ for Perennial volunteers

During August Perennial volunteers were treated to some special gardens visits as a thank you for giving their time for Perennial this year. The visits were organised by the National Garden Scheme (NGS) for its beneficiary charities, as a part of its campaign to promote the positive effects of gardens on health and wellbeing.

Groups of volunteers took part in trips to gardens in London, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Suffolk and Cornwall. This was a chance to visit some gardens that are not usually open to the public and enjoy spending time with other volunteers in a beautiful garden. Thanks go to the NGS and also the garden owners who provided a warm welcome and refreshments.

Volunteers are the lifeblood of Perennial and their help comes in many different forms. From running plant creches, trade stands and helping on gardens at flower shows, taking part in fundraising, assisting at head office or getting involved at our gardens, Perennial could simply not offer its range of services and activities without them.

If you are interested in getting involved as a volunteer, please get in touch.
