A new website has been launched that allows garden centres to publicise their Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day events to customers, local and national press and a much wider audience via social media.
Hundreds of garden retailers are expected to participate in the fourth, annual Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day, which takes place on 27th March 2015, to help boost the early spring sales season, whilst raising funds for Greenfingers, the small national charity dedicated to creating gardens in children’s hospices across the UK.
Garden centres wanting to take part should register on the website, and can also take advantage of free publicity for their events, by filling in the simple form online at www.gardenreleaf.co.uk/register-an-event. Once registered, each individual event appears on the site’s ‘events’ section, and is searchable by area to help the public find their local participating garden centre. Early registration on the site will also mean events will have a chance to be publicized by the central Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day communications team, bringing industry wide recognition to individual garden centres’ fundraising plans.
Founder of Garden Re-Leaf Day, trustee of Greenfingers, and CEO of Hillview Garden Centres, Boyd Douglas-Davies, is passionate about the new website: “This is a fantastic opportunity for all garden retailers, especially those looking to ensure the best promotion of their fantastic Garden Re-Leaf Day events which is so important to the success of the day. In just five minutes, you can fill in our online form, effortlessly setting the promotional ball rolling, putting yourself in front of customers, local people and the media.”
The newly launched website features news, galleries of events from previous years and information on how the money raised is spent, including images of Greenfingers children’s hospice gardens which have already benefited from Garden Re-Leaf Day fundraising.
The organisers of Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf Day are currently ramping up promotional activity in time for the 27th March 2015. Some of the event ideas already on the cards include hosting the popular Greenfingers Garden Re-leaf Day Gardening Quiz; getting involved with the Loose Change promotion; simple yet unique ways to put on your own sponsored cycle ride; and fun family day activities such as making cress heads and sowing sunflowers – the Home Garden Association’s plant of the year for 2015.
