    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Greenfingers is a charity which builds magical gardens in children's hospices across the UK. The gardens provide safe outdoor spaces for children with terminal or life limiting illnesses to spend building memories with their loved ones away from the hospital bedside.

    The gardens are a place children and their families can go to play and have fun, or for therapeutic relaxation, ensuring what moments they have together are happy ones.

    They also provide memorial spaces for families to visit and remember the children after they pass, or for other children in the hospice to go to remember their friends.

    The work they do can be best summed up by the staff at Greenfingers themselves and the children and hospices they help, so please find five minutes of your day to watch this video where they show the incredible work they do:

    Their waiting list is long and building and maintaining the gardens costs around £340,000 per year.

    Greenfingers is the chosen charity for 2017 of Kew Green Hotels who, across their network, plan to raise at least £100000 to support their amazing work.

    The staff at the Holiday Inn East Kilbride have committed to raising AT LEAST £5000 of this, with £2500 of that to be raised by the end of January.

    We plan to do this through a series of fundraising events throughout the year, but we need your help!

    Every penny raised is another rose grown in a beautiful garden for a terminally ill child. Please consider helping us support Greenfingers build their wonderful garden sanctuaries.

    There are a few ways you can help:

    • By donating to this page to get us closer to our fundraising target.
    • By sharing this page so more people learn about the fantastic work of Greenfingers.
    • By going to www.greenfingerscharity.org.uk to learn more about them or donate directly.
    • By looking out for and supporting our fundraising events throughout 2017.
    • By telling everyone you know about this amazing charity!
