Legacy hands shutterstock_reduced

Seven years ago, Perennial received a gift with the capacity to change the lives of generations of horticulturists.

Joan Lironi was not a professional gardener. However, she had a deep love of outdoor spaces and understood the need to nurture its custodians.

Her legacy enabled us to build a lifeline for horticulturists. We used the income to set up the Lironi Training Fund. Through it, we support a range of learning initiatives.

The fund recognises a need to encourage young people to choose – and sustain – a career in horticulture and it helps maintain standards of excellence in the industry.

The Lironi Training Fund is a fabulous example of a single legacy being put to a specific use, but our clients place the greatest value on the support and advice they receive from our highly-trained Caseworkers and Debt Advisers.

Without the support of legacies it wouldn’t be possible to continue with this high level of service so all contributions to Perennial are essential.

A gift to Perennial in a will is a legacy in every sense of the word – it will help horticulturists for generations to come.
