West End star Jodie Prenger plants De Jager bulbs in Hyde Park for Breast Cancer Campaign

Jodie Prenger, the actress playing Nancy in the latest West End production of Oliver, has planted a range of bulbs in the Rose Garden of London's Hyde Park to show her support for the Breast Cancer Campaign.

The pink and white bulbs were donated by P de Jager & Sons which has pledged its support to Campaign for a year.

Prenger was joined by three female colleagues as they took time out from rehearsals at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.

She said: "By planting the pink bulbs we want to encourage gardeners across the UK to purchase P de Jager’s Pink Bulb Range, identified by the pink ribbon on the packaging, and to help raise much needed funds to support Campaign’s invaluable research."

Breast Cancer Campaign and P de Jager will work together all year to promote the special charity range of bulbs.

De Jager has pledged to donate 10 per cent of each sale of the Pink Bulb range to charity. Each specially designed Pink Bulb Box priced £30 contributes £2.60 to the campaign.
