How will you raise money for Perennial in 2021?
We need you to help us raise as much money as possible to help people in horticulture and their families through hard times. During the first week of lockdown the number of people contacting us for help increased by nearly 400%! Our initial focus was on helping those who suddenly found themselves in a difficult position and ensuring that we got the information out to everyone in the industry. We also sadly needed to cancel or postpone all our fundraising events planned for what is usually our busiest time of the year for garden tours and flower shows.
Fundraising for Perennial takes place at any time of year, just as Perennial’s services are available year-round for all those who work in or are retired from horticulture. Alan Titchmarsh, President of Perennial explains below why it is so important that we all dig deep to support the only charity in the UK dedicated to helping horticulturists in need.
“Looking back we simply couldn’t have coped during that time without Perennial”
If you’re looking for a fundraising challenge then visit our self-isolation fundraising ideas page, sign up to one of our events or get in touch with us here at Perennial to find out more. Tell us what you plan to do and we’ll help promote your event and fundraising page.
Our work depends entirely on the generosity of the horticulture industry and the garden-loving public. In order to continue supporting horticulturists in crisis, we need your help in raising money. Help Perennial change lives this year.
So get your thinking caps on and let’s make this year the most spectacular and successful ever!
