A group of colleagues and friends from Greenspace Solutions in Leeds (now owned by GRITIT UK) are joining forces to raise money for HortAid this year in memory of Alan Broomfield.
Alan, who worked for Greenspace Solutions, died from cancer last year and leaves a wife and young son.
The family has been helped and supported by Perennial and we would like to say 'thanks'.
As a team we are challenging ourselves to complete the Yorkshire Three Peaks (23 July), Yorkshire Tough Mudder (6 August), and the Yorkshire Marathon (9 October). In the marathon we will have individual runners as well as a Corporate Relay team from Green-Tech Ltd.
We will also work with the BALI Yorkshire and North East region to host additional fundraising events throughout the year and have set ourselves a target of £10,000.
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.
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 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.

That means more money goes to the charity, faster, with JustGiving.
