The Cabbages team lift Greenfingers Challenge Cup
Some of our members are celebrating after being crowned the winners of a game of ‘fockey’ and helping raise £25,150 for Greenfingers (January, 2018).
The Greenfingers Challenge Cup, which was held at Stratford Leisure Centre, adjacent to The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon and marked the start of our annual conference, saw the Cabbages team, made up of garden centre suppliers, take the crown.
This year’s Greenfingers Challenge Cup included the Pansies and the Cabbages going up against each other in a game of ‘fockey’ with an element of ‘fun and frolics’ and what a fantastic event it was. It is great news that such a substantial amount was raised for such a worthwhile cause.
We’d like to congratulate the Cabbages on their win and thank everyone who took part.
Guy Topping, Managing Director of Barton Grange Garden Centre lead The Pansies team, which was made up of garden centre staff and Ian Flounders from Woodlodge lead The Cabbages team.
