Actors Jude Law and David Tennant have joined the supporters of Garden Re-Leaf Day’s Gardening Quiz, by recording a round of questions. The audio quiz is available as a customer event opportunity to any garden centre taking part in the annual fund-raising day in March.
The two stars join actress Naomie Harris in presenting a section of the questions alongside Eastenders' Danny Dyer and Patsy Palmer and impressionist Alistair McGowan in the vocal style of celebrities John Humphrys, David Mitchell, Matt Baker, Dara Ó Briain and Stephen Fry.
The quiz – which includes both general knowledge and gardening rounds – can be ordered by all retailers, suppliers and other organisations participating in Garden Re-Leaf Day, with funds raised going towards its chosen charity, Greenfingers.
Garden Re-Leaf Day’s founder and Hillview Garden Centre CEO Boyd Douglas-Davies said: "We’re enormously grateful that so many mainstream stars have supported this year’s Garden Re-Leaf Day quiz – it will be more popular than ever. It’s a simple way for retailers both to take part in Garden Re-Leaf, and attract scores of customers in-store at the start of the spring gardening season.
He added: "You can make the event even more effective by running other sales promotions, refreshments and fund-raisers alongside. The organiser’s pack costs just £100 and is available by calling 01993 871456 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org"
Garden centres and suppliers across the UK are expected to take part in the third annual Garden Re-Leaf Day, held on Friday 14th March 2014 and across the weekend. Participants are being urged to register their involvement by emailing the organising team at email@example.com with an overview of planned activities.
The location of the garden centre or supplier and events will then be added to the Garden Re-Leaf Day website: www.gardenreleaf.co.uk.
As in its first two years, Garden Re-Leaf Day’s nominated charity in 2014 is Greenfingers; the nationwide charity dedicated to building gardens in children’s hospices around the UK. Since 2012 Garden Re-Leaf Day participants have raised more than £116,000 for the cause.
