Woodlodge announces charity partnerships for 2018

Garden pots and planters supplier Woodlodge has announced it will be partnering with the garden retail industry’s charity, Greenfingers, and also the UK’s leading terminal illness support charity, Marie Curie, throughout 2018 to raise vital funds and awareness.

Two special Woodlodge plant pots will be launched into the retail market in the coming months, with a percentage from each pot sold set to be donated to each charity.

Greenfingers, the charity dedicated to creating inspiring gardens for children who spend time in hospices around the UK, is set to benefit from sales of a new terracotta pot from Woodlodge. Retailing at £9.99, 50p from every pot sold will go directly to the charity. The pot will also be backed by a social media campaign where customers will be encouraged to post a photo of their finished planter with the hashtag #greenfingerspot. Those that engage on social media platforms will have a chance to win a garden makeover.

The Marie Curie charity pots are available as stackable pots, available in three different colours all showcasing the charity’s well recognised daffodil logo. The promotion will commence in May 2018, with Woodlodge donating 75p per pot sold to the charity.

Woodlodge managing director Michael Wooldridge said: “We are delighted to be working with Greenfingers and Marie Curie to raise money for such deserving charities. We are hoping both pots will be popular with our customers who will join us in supporting both valuable causes. As always we shall supply all stock with supporting POS, with our in-house merchandising ensuring the displays continue to look their best throughout the season to help drive sales instore.”

Over the years Woodlodge has been successful in raising considerable amounts of money for many worthwhile causes including The World Owl Trust and The Honeypot Children’s Charity following sales of its themed planters. Woodlodge are also a licenced partner to The National Trust, where for each product sold a contribution is made to the National Trust to help look after and conserve their properties and gardens.
