Perennial launches Diamond Partner scheme and welcomes four new Partners

Horticulture trade charity Perennial has launched a new Diamond supporter level within its Perennial Partner scheme, allowing businesses to show their support by signing up for an annual donation of £5,000. There are Perennial Partner levels to suit all – between £100 and £5,000 per annum.

The new Diamond category comes as the charity confirms four new Perennial Partners, announced during the Party for Perennial on 15 January. The Institute of Groundsmanship and GK Wilson Landscaping have become Platinum Partners, while W Crowder & Sons has signed up as a Gold Partner and Bulldog Tools is now a Silver Partner.

The Perennial Partner scheme generates an essential, regular income for the charity, enabling it to plan its services for the future and commit to recruiting the caseworkers and debt advisers so heavily relied upon by its clients. Businesses can choose the level of support that is appropriate for their business – Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze.

Laura Garnett, Development Manager at Perennial says:

“We have forged strong relationships with many businesses and organisations in the industry. We are delighted to welcome our four new Partners and would encourage others to follow their lead. We rely on our Partners, not only for the valuable financial contribution they bring, but also to help us spread the word about the support we can give colleagues when times get tough.”
