Solus backs Greenfingers unwanted stock fundraiser

Solus Garden & Leisure will be supporting Greenfingers with its 2012 fundraiser 'Turn Old into Gold'.

Greenfingers marketing director Deborah Skillicorn said:

"For this initiative we are asking horticultural companies to donate their surplus returned, ex-demo and end of line gardening stock so we can auction the products off to raise money.

"Solus has agreed to transport the products free of charge from companies nationwide to W&H Peacock Auctioneers and Valuers in Bedford. Its partnership is vital for the fundraiser.

"Turn Old into Gold is the perfect chance for companies to clear out their unwanted stock and also raise money for charity in the process. It is a win-win situation for everyone."

The money raised will be used to help build gardens for children with terminal illnesses in children’s hospices. .

Solus MD Nick Davies added:

"We are delighted we could help Greenfingers with its new fundraiser for 2012. It is a great idea and we hope it raises lots of money for the charity."
