Bulldog Tools backs RHS campaign

Bulldog Tools begins its backing of the RHS campaign for school gardening this month with the Tools for Schools initiative.

For any school reaching the level-two benchmark, Bulldog will donate £30 of tools, up to 500 tool packs worth £15,000 in all. Registered schools will also be able to buy discounted tools from Bulldog. There are 5,500 schools in the scheme.

Bulldog marketing manager Fred Foot said: "We have a forged-steel children's tools range and we wanted to expand on that idea. Linking to the RHS was the ideal platform. We got involved because we have a desire to get children interested in gardening. I think it's an excellent campaign. Anything that gets kids into gardening is a good thing."

The campaign has a 2009 planner available, along with a pack for the RSPB's Big Schools' Birdwatch (19-30 January).

Bulldog is launching a lighter children's stainless-steel range next month.
