HortAid 2016

Our annual fundraising campaign to raise money for current and former UK horticulturists needing help, advice and support.

Charity Registration No. 1155156 & SC040180


Thanks for visiting my fundraising page.

You may remember that a group of landscapers, plants-people, designers and contractors first came together to raise money for Perennial in 2013 with the Three Peaks Extreme challenge. We climbed the three highest peaks in the UK, and cycled between them, in just 5 days raising over £26,000 for our industry charity.

This year we're back with a bigger team, a different challenge and a higher target.

Two teams of cyclists will set off from Snowdon in September 2016, one team on road bikes, the other on mountain bikes, both aiming for Lands End. One team will stay on-road, the other will ride exclusively off-road. Who will reach Lands End quickest, and who will raise the most money?

Why we're riding:
Perennial is the only UK charity dedicated to helping all horticulturists, and their families, when one of life's challenges makes the going tough. Perennial offers free and confidential help, advice and financial assistance for as long as it is needed. Often described simply as a 'lifeline' by those it helps, we want to raise a significant amount of money this year to help Perennial support colleagues across the UK.

Remember: Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never share them with anyone or send you unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. They'll make sure Gift Aid (an additional 25%) is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer, too. That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.

Once again thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.
