Provender Nurseries makes leap year donation to Perennial

2 Min Read

Provender Nurseries donated 10% of takings at the nursery taken on February 29 to Perennial with ‘make a day make a difference.’

The resulting sum of sales on February 29 of £1600 has now been donated to Perennial.

Richard McKenna, Director of Provender Nurseries, says ‘Leap year comes around every four years, and we thought it was a simple but great way to celebrate an extra day and raise awareness of Perennial, the only charity dedicated to providing support to all people working in the many varied fields of horticulture. We are delighted to be able to support Perennial and we enjoy working with them in many guises, through fund raising to having representatives on site giving talks to our team members.’

Kate Cooney; “Provender Nurseries is one of Perennial’s long-standing Partners, and their support for the work we do has been phenomenal. Provender’s continued support has not only helped us spread the word about who we help and how we support people working in horticulture (and their families) it has helped us to raise vital funds to continue our work. Our message is simple: the more support we receive, the more people we can help. In 2023, our services department saw record numbers of people contacting them due to experiencing an increase in delays in accessing health, social care, and housing services and, of course, the cost-of-living crisis. The support received from Provender is a great example of how the industry can support the charity through fundraising and by finding ways of spreading our message that Perennial is here for all those working with grass, trees, flowers, and plants that need our help.”

Provender Nurseries have been Perennial Partners since 2018 and involve Perennial regularly at events held on-site to raise awareness across the industry.
