Greenfingers ups social media presence

Children's hospice garden charity Greenfingers is growing the brand through an increased social media presence.

The #gluvies campaign will run again for Garden Re-Leaf Day on 17 March.

Greenfingers has seen a 52 per cent increase in Facebook page likes.

On Twitter, the charity has made 2,969 tweets, has 4,376 followers and 2,407 likes.
