River Island to rehome gnomes for Greenfingers

High street fashion retailer River Island is set to 'rehome' gnomes for the Greenfingers children's garden charity this Christmas.

A range of limited edition two-feet high gnomes will feature in the windows of over 60 River Island stores across the UK this Christmas. The mannequins will be available to purchase in-store only on a first-come-first-served basis next month. More details about the campaign will follow soon.

Meanwhile, Greenfingers is working with Grace House in Sunderland on an exciting design for a new family and children’s garden designed by Sean Murray, the winner of the BBCs RHS Chelsea Challenge in 2015.

Oxford's Helen & Douglas House "Kaleidoscope" design is the result of a competition with alumni students at the KLC School of Design to be built from autumn.

Funded by Homebase and designed by Adam Frost and the Homebase Academy students, a new central hub at Keech Hospice Care is also being created.
