Partnerships - Squire's Garden Centres

Partnerships

We are proud to be partnered with the following organisations and charities.


Greenfingers

A charity we have worked with and supported for a number of years. Greenfingers builds magical gardens at hospices for children and their families to relax in and find peace and enjoyment, sometimes in the most difficult of circumstances.

In the last few years, we have donated the proceeds of the government carrier bag tax to this worthy cause.

Raising Money for Local People

We believe that our garden centres should be at the absolute heart of the local community, contributing to local causes whenever we can. 

Each of our garden centres select their own charity of the year, which is a local charity that is often close to many of our hearts. Each centre works closely with their chosen charity to support their wonderful work in the community, as well as raising awareness and money for them through customer donations at our Christmas grottos, special fundraising events, and from customers putting money into collection pots, wishing wells and fountains at our centres.

Visit our centre pages to see which charities we are supporting this year.

To apply to be one of our local charities of the year, please email marketing@squiresgardencentres.co.uk for a form. To qualify, the charity must give the money raised to the local area (as apposed to going into a national pot) and the charity must be focused on helping people.
