Thrive launches its first ever major fundraising day ‘Wear your Wellies to Work’

The idea is simple – slip off your shoes on Wednesday September 20, wear your wellies instead and make a donation to Thrive. People working in offices can take part, schools, colleges, anyone who has a pair of wellies!

It’s a bit of fun raising much-needed funds for Thrive who are leaders in the field of social and therapeutic horticulture helping more than 1,000 disabled, vulnerable or disadvantaged people every year.

The charity will use the money to enable horticultural therapists to help even more people to improve their physical and psychological health, communication and thinking skills, knowledge base and gain skills that might lead to volunteering elsewhere or employment.

Thrive has a Wear your Wellies campaign page on JustGiving (https://www.justgiving.com/campaigns/charity/thrive/wearyourwelliestowork) where you can make your donation, or give via text quoting BOOT03 to 70070 and the amount you want to give – for example BOOT03£5.

Sandy Fitzgerald, business development manager at Thrive, said: “While it’s a busman’s holiday for our gardening friends please don’t feel left out as we’d love to see you in your wellies on your garden or allotment.

“Upload your welly boot pictures on Social Media use #welliestowork and show the world you are giving it some welly for Thrive!

“And our top fundraiser will win a fantastic welly boot store kindly donated by our friends at Forest Garden.

“If you get in touch with use before the day we can promote your involvement on our Social Media channels and our website. We can also send you some stickers in the post to show you’ve supported us.

“So please, this September 20th – Give it some Welly for Thrive!”

Email fundraising@thrive.org.uk for more information.

Thrive has three centres in the UK – Beech Hill, near Reading in Berkshire, Battersea Park, London and Kings Heath Park, Birmingham but is a national charity helping more than 3,000 people via its information service and run training courses around the country and online.
