Products help raise funds for Greenfingers charity

Six products have been made available for garden centres and DIY stores nationwide to sell this season (spring/summer) to raise funds for Greenfingers, which builds gardens for children's hospices.

William Sinclair is raising funds by donating 2p to the charity for every 20-litre bag of J Arthur Bower's Top Soil. SOLUS Garden & Leisure is donating 10 per cent of the recommended retail price per packet of its bamboo plant labels.

Delamore Young Plants is donating 2.5p from each sale of its Littletunias range of 10 Petunia hybrids. The company has named the 10 varieties after gardens that Greenfingers has created. Global Journey is donating 25p from every CD sold in its range.

EcoCharlie is donating 6p from every box of its Snail and Slug Deterrent sold in garden centres and online. Garden Innovations is donating 40p from every pack of its award-winning Bottle Top Waterers.

Greenfingers chairman Richard Jackson said: "We are thrilled to be working with these companies, which are raising funds for Greenfingers by donating proceeds from great products to our cause."

He added: "I would encourage any retailer thinking of raising money for charity this season to get in touch because this is a great way to do something special for children in hospices across the country as well as being easy on resources."
