Sipcam Home & Garden launches product to support the Greenfingers

by | May 18, 2022 | News, Product News, Products | 0 comments

Sipcam Home & Garden has launched a new special edition product to help raise funds for the children’s hospice garden charity, Greenfingers.

Fresh for the 2022 season, Sipcam will see 50p from the sale of every bottle of the ecofective® Basket and Tub Feed (RRP £7.99) donated to Greenfingers’ annual fundraising total.  Available exclusively from Homebase for the 2022 season, the Sipcam team hopes that the ongoing popularity of gardening and container gardening in particular, will help the company to hand over a sizeable cheque to the charity.

Nigel Thompson, head of sales at Sipcam Home & Garden says: “Our industry has adopted Greenfingers as its charity of choice, and we are proud to offer our ongoing support to them as they continue to build even more therapeutic garden spaces in children’s hospices across the country. We sincerely hope that our special edition Basket and Tub Feed, and our relationship with Homebase, will pay dividends for the charity both this season and beyond.”

Linda Petrons, director of fundraising and communications at Greenfingers adds: “We are reliant on relationships such as this one recently forged with Sipcam Home & Garden and are beyond touched that they have considered us within their plans for the year ahead. On behalf of all of us at Greenfingers, and all those that spend time in one of our gardens, thank you. Your support means the world to us.”
