Bulldog Tools sponsors RHS Campaign for School Gardening

The RHS aims to ramp up the profile of its Campaign for School Gardening after signing a sponsorship deal with Bulldog Tools worth thousands of pounds.

The British tool maker founded in 1780 agreed support to the campaign for a further year and a half though a monthly prizedraw. Bulldog Tools will offer 25 children’s rake and hoe sets to schools taking part in the campaign.

In total 500 sets will be given out, equalling a support package worth over £10,000, said Ruth Evans, RHS head of community & development. The campaign, launched in 2007, has registered over 14,500 schools and education centres.

Each school that joins is encouraged to develop a garden and use it for teaching pupils. Schools are benchmarked across five levels on the development of their plots.

Stuart Elsom, managing director at Bulldog Tools, said, "I am pleased Bulldog tools has been able to provide the tools for the job and continue it’s support for the RHS Campaign for School Gardening."
