Gardman partners with Marie Curie for second bird feeder campaign

Gardman has released its second bird feeder campaign following the bestselling poppy bird feeder launch in September.

Daffodil bird feeders are this seasons charity product for Gardman with hopes of raising £200,000 for the charity, Marie Curie.

The daffodil bird feeder will be available in garden centres nationwide including Homebase, B&Q, Choice and Notcutts from January 2017.

This seasons bird feeder is retailing at £6.99 and will be sold alongside Marie Curie branded wild bird seed blend costing between £4.99 for a 1.8kg pack and £14.99 for a 12.55kg pack.

Gardman has launched the campaign after exceeding targets for its first campaign in association with the Royal British Legion. The Gardman poppy bird feeders sold out in retail outlets nationwide and raised over £200,000.

Gavin White, marketing director at Gardman, said: "We hope to raise £200,000 for Marie Curie through the sale of our charity Daffodil bird feeder and wild bird seed blend. Through the sales of our charity products and with the help of the general public, we aim to leave a lasting impression for the charity."

Marie Curie is a charity which helps people with terminal illness and their families. Each £20 raised will pay for an hour of nursing care for someone living with a terminal illness.
