PERENNIAL, the charity for people in arboriculture and horticulture across the UK, is ready to support families and individuals this Christmas who are feeling the festive strain or struggling with unexpected or life-changing events such as redundancy or health issues.

The charity is offering people who work in or are retired from arboriculture or horticulture and are struggling financially with up to £100 worth of supermarket vouchers. Perennial is also reminding everyone about its wide-ranging, tailored, one-to-one support this Christmas.

Julia Hayne, director of services at Perennial, said: “Many people feel added pressure at this time of year with more demands on their already stretched financial resources, anxiety about meeting everyone’s expectations or feelings of isolation from those around them. If you are struggling in the lead up to Christmas, you’re not alone. Please get in touch with us to find out how we can support you and your family.”

Perennial relies on the support of the industry to continue offering tailored one-to-one support. If you or your company would like to make a difference this Christmas, visit for more information.
