As one of the UK?s leading garden products suppliers, Gardman have a long history of working with charities including the Greenfinger?s Charity, The Royal British Legion and of course Marie Curie. In 2017 over 200,000 Marie Curie cast iron daffodil feeders were sold and three new products were added into our Royal British Legion Poppy campaign which delivered 100% sales growth.
Off the back of those successes in 2017 we are proud to announce the launch of our Marie Curie 2018 Promotion. With the help of our customers, this year we are aiming to raise over ?200,000 to help provide care and support for people living with a terminal illness and their families across the UK.
Marie Curie nurses work day and night in people?s homes across the UK providing hands-on care and vital emotional support. Helper volunteers regularly visit people who need support just to have a chat over a cup of tea, help them to arrange an appointment or just listen when they need a friendly ear. Hospices offer the assurance of round the clock care and support in a friendly environment for people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones. Marie Curie also provide a support line and online help offering practical information and support.
Matt Easters, Head of Brand said ?Due to the great work this charity does for so many people Gardman are delighted to support its work with donations, and as one of Marie Curie?s key partners, we have developed a bespoke range of products that generates a donation from each product sold.?
Our trade customers will love how they are displayed in attractive pallet deals, so they can be positioned just where a garden centre needs to create eye-catching displays. The expanded range comprises of Cast Iron Daffodil Feeder; Solar Daffodil Light; Decorative Spring Daffodil; Glass Daffodil Table; Glass Daffodil Birdbath and Glass Daffodil Doormat. We have added five new products to our Marie Curie range, each designed to complement the others.
Linking up with charities is proving so popular with customers as the items we retail with donations become the highest selling products within the category for weeks at a time.
