Essex garden furniture retailer White Stores are excited to announce our support for Greenfingers, the national charity committed to supporting children and families through the creation of magical gardens at children’s hospices throughout the UK. To help raise funds and awareness for this truly worthwhile cause, White Stores will be donating 10% of our net sales made online, by telephone or at our Wickford showroom during the charity’s national Garden Re-Leaf Day 2015 on Friday 27th March.
The Greenfingers charity creates beautiful gardens at hospices for children to enjoy with their family and friends. These outdoor spaces are the perfect place for play and fun, but they can also provide therapeutic rest and relaxation. The chance to spend time together outdoors, and away from the bedside, is precious and can bring many benefits to children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. To date, Greenfingers have created 44 inspiring gardens in children’s hospices around the country, and have a further waiting list of hospices that need help.
“Our Garden Re-Leaf Day 2015 donation to Greenfingers is a practical way of showing our admiration for the amazing work this charity does to improve the well-being of children and their families on a daily basis,” says James Whiteley, Founder and Managing Director of White Stores. “We hope our customers will be thrilled to be a part of this special day and that White Stores can make a valuable contribution to Greenfingers and the hospices they help.”
“Thank you so much to White Stores for this generous support of Greenfingers, we are thrilled to have them on board,” adds Linda Petrons, Head of Fundraising at Greenfingers. “This contribution from sales on Friday 27th March will undoubtedly help to make this year’s Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day the best yet – and we look forward to creating even more inspiring gardens for children and families who use hospices around the UK to enjoy as a result of this wonderful support.”
