Poppy appeal launched by Cardwell Garden Centre

by | Oct 24, 2018 | News | 0 comments

Cardwell Garden Centre has recruited a mini army of poppy sellers – and they?re all girls called Poppy.
The garden centre had posted a message asking for any youngsters with the name to come forward.
They wanted someone to be the face of their fund-raising efforts. They were to raise for Poppy Scotland and the Royal British Legion.
Within only a few hours they mums, dads, grans and grandpas nominated more than 40 girls.
And because of the huge response, Cardwell invited them all for a photoshoot.
Cardwell Garden Centre is donating 50p for every ?6.99 Gardman Poppy Bird Feeder sold .
Every sale of special Apta Wall Pots, costing ?14.99 will see more money raised. Cardwell will donate ?1.50.
There will be a ?1 donation for every Wall Plaque, costing ?9.99 sold.
Cardwell?s Paul Carmichael said: ?We thought of having a youngster with the name promoting our fund-raising. Tying it in with Remembrance Day would be a bit unusual.
?We’re amazed and delighted at the reaction from the public. Having so many girls with this name volunteering makes our photograph all the more unique.?
