An impressive £31,800 was raised for Greenfingers during Richard Jackson’s Garden Re-Leaf shows on QVC, thanks to donations from vendors and the support of customers to Greenfingers. The figure takes the total QVC has raised for the charity since 2013 to £207,000.
Over 21,000 gardening products were sold online and within the shows on Sunday, March 18. A number of products sold out and Rupert Precious actually phoned Holland for further stock of Montrose of Guernsey’s 10 x Freesia Scented Cali Lily Bulbs, as they had sold out during the first hour.
Greenfingers Charity head of fundraising Linda Petrons said: “On behalf of us all at Greenfingers Charity we would like to say a huge thank you to QVC for once again supporting Greenfingers Charity’s Garden Re-Leaf Day.
“Thanks must also go to the presenters who worked so hard and to the vendors for their incredible generosity, not forgetting of course the garden loving viewers for making purchases on this special show.
“The £32,000 raised this year means that, since 2013, you have raised a staggering £207,000. The money raised in previous years is already making a real difference to life-limited children and their families and this year’s fundraising will help Greenfingers Charity create more magical and inspiring gardens in children’s hospices across the UK.”
