HortAid boosted by The Grower Awards 2016

Representatives from across the UK’s production industry helped raise over £900 for Perennial at the annual Grower Awards, held  at The Connaught Rooms in London on 3 February 2016. The event, which celebrated the achievements of growers from all sectors of UK crop production, supported Perennial as the official Awards Charity with collection envelopes on tables.

Laura Garnett, Development Manager at Perennial, said,

“We’d like to thank everyone who donated to Perennial at The Grower Awards last week – we received almost double the amount raised last year which is testament to the growing awareness of the work of Perennial and its support of all horticulturists in times of crisis. Congratulations to all the finalists and winners on the night, many of whom are Perennial supporters in their own right, and we look forward to continuing to spread the word so that everyone in this brilliant industry knows that Perennial is here to help.”
