Record donation from Griffin Glasshouses ends the year in style
Two new greenhouses launched by gardening celebrity Alan Titchmarsh at the Chelsea Flower Show have helped Griffin Glasshouses make its largest ever annual contribution to the National Garden Scheme.
A cheque for £23,587 – over £10,000 more than its previous best annual contribution – has been given to the charity by Griffin Glasshouses managing director, Linda Lane.
“We were delighted when Alan agreed to unveil our new Lavender and Tarragon National Garden Scheme greenhouses at Chelsea in 2018 and they have become extremely popular, accounting for almost a third of the total contribution we have made this year,” says Linda.
“Griffin has been a wonderfully generous supporter since 2013 and during that time has given us a total of £68,686 from the sale of their top-quality greenhouses. This year’s record donation is hugely welcome and will make a great contribution to our support for nursing and health charities,” says National Garden Scheme CEO, George Plumptre.
Griffin Glasshouses has a range of National Garden Scheme greenhouses and gives a proportion of sales back to the scheme each year. You can explore the range here
