A cheque for £2,550 was presented to children’s hospice garden charity Greenfingers, as a donation from decorative aggregate specialist Deco-Pak at the GIMA Charity Golf and Activity Day.
The money was part-raised over the last 18 months through a play pit sand promotion that is to continue throughout 2018, with the goal of raising over £10,000 by 2020.
Greenfingers Charity head of corporate partnerships Linda Petrons said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Deco-Pak this year through the sale of play pit sand. The money raised through this range will help pave the way for more magical gardens for children’s hospices nationwide, enhancing the care to children and families living with terminal illness. We’re incredibly grateful to have the support of Deco-Pak and look forward to working with them in the future.”
Deco-Pak director, GIMA council member and Greenfingers ambassador Craig Hall presented the cheque to the charity and outlined the family company’s fundraising commitment for the next year.
He said: “Greenfingers is such a fantastic cause which is needed by, and resonates with, everyone in our industry. At Deco-Pak, we plan to raise £10,000 for Greenfingers by 2020 through the sale of our charity play pit sand, fundraising and other activities.
“Through the sales of our charity products through consumers and our retail partners, we aim to leave a lasting impression for the charity, and help provide more gardens for children with life limiting illnesses and their families.”
