A Busy Year For Our Charity Partners Greenfingers And Perennial

A Busy Year For Our Charity Partners Greenfingers And Perennial – we take a look at what our charity partners have been up to in 2018, as well as a look forward to what 2019 has in store.

As Christmas approaches, it’s time to check in with Greenfingers and Perennial, the two charities we at London Stone support through our Landscaper Specialist Scheme.

A large part of my new (when do I stop referring to it as ‘new’?) role working for London Stone is uniting our industry, bringing together soft and hard landscaping closer together, unifying what we all do and upskilling ourselves in the process.
