Go Nuts for Perennial 2018


Why they took part:

“Having fun helping others just makes sense! 

The race itself is great fun; as soon as you start…you don’t want to stop waiting for the next obstacle. It [is] very enjoyable even if you are not fully trained for it. 

This event brings [the] Majestic Trees team together, in addition to the satisfaction that [the] time and effort [is] useful for such a loyal cause within our sector. 

I think Perennial … is continuously working to promote… the charity [and] deliver its goals.”
Majestic Trees Team







“I took part in the NUTS event as I wanted a challenge from my everyday work and I believe Perennial do great work for the Horticultural industry.  

It was great to raise awareness for Perennial in my fundraising at work and to share with other Gardeners that Help is out there. 

The event itself was perfectly organised with regular emails and helpful tips and encouragement.  

I’m looking forward to taking on another challenge in 2019 with Perennial”
James Madge, Gardener
