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

Story

In December 2015 Greenspace Solutions (now GRITIT)  sadly lost a close friend and colleague after a short battle against cancer. Alan Broomfield  was a pivotal member of our team who inspired all of us to work hard and play hard.

We are taking part in three challenges during summer 2016 to
celebrate his life and raise funds for Perennial, the charity who supported Alan during his illness and who are continuing to support Jo and Alfie.

The challenges are: The Yorkshire Three Peaks (July), Yorkshire Tough Mudder (August) and Yorkshire Marathon (October). In the marathon we will have individual runners (e.g. me) as well as a relay team. We will also work with the BALI North East region to host additional fundraising events throughout the year. 

Why we're raising money for Perennial:

Perennial is the only UK charity supporting the people who work in horticulture, and who can step in at times like this to help both the landscaper and the family. 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 like Alan and his family 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.
