The 40th annual BALI National Landscape Awards, which took place on 2 December at Grosvenor House on Park Lane in London, raised an incredible amount of money for Perennial and the BALI Chalk Fund. Each charity will receive almost £2,500 after a collection took place on the night. The Perennial monies have been added to the Three Peakers Ride Again: Snowdon to Lands End challenge total which now stands at over £40,000, making this Perennial’s biggest ever fundraising event.
Speaking about Perennial’s long association with BALI and the brilliant partnership that has blossomed between the two organisations in recent years, Kate O’Shea, Development Manager at Perennial, said:
“The money raised by the BALI Awards and by individual BALI members from across the UK this year adds up to a truly life-changing amount of money. Perennial relies on the generosity of supporters from across the horticulture industry in order to offer help and advice to anyone working in or retired from horticulture and partnerships like the one we enjoy with BALI are crucial in safeguarding the future of the charity. We look forward to continuing to work with BALI and its members to ensure that all those who work in this great industry are cared for and supported throughout their career and into their retirement.”
