Peckish campaign hits 100 garden centres

Garden bird food brand, Peckish, is thanking 100 garden centres for their involvement in the Go Wild With Peckish campaign.

The week-long campaign, held over October half term included activities such as bird mask and fat ball making sessions and a bird spotting activity with cut out bird characters. Thousands of goodie bags were provided by Peckish for garden centres to issue to participants.

Lots of creative entries were received to the drawing competition which was run through garden centres and online at the Go Wild With Peckish website. Noah Gilpin from Bangor in County Down won the competition with his bird Magic McGee. He won a family membership to Tayto Park in Ireland.

Peckish senior marketing manager Wendy French said: "This is the second year the Go Wild With Peckish campaign has encouraged ‘generation digital’ to switch off their devices and experience the enjoyment of bird-feeding. Once again, we were astounded by the support that we received from garden centres up and down the UK and would like to thank them for getting behind the campaign."
