With over 50 entries received, the competition generated quite a buzz at the school. It was however the design of four-year-old Anusha that captured the attention of the Deco-Pak team. The use of bright colours and delicate bird drawings will now be rolled out on Deco-Pak’s classic white birdfeeder, with the final design set to hit stores in March 2014. The special edition Greenfingers birdfeeders will retail at RRP £19.99, with £2.50 from each sale going to the garden industry’s charity, Greenfingers. Deco-Pak will also be providing finished feeders to the school as a token of thanks.
Craig Hall, marketing director at Deco-Pak, commented: “We are extremely pleased that we have been able to get schoolchildren involved in this special one-off design project. The competition has not only given them the opportunity to explore their creative minds, but has also provided us with a product which will no doubt be a sales winner for retailers. What’s more the special edition feeder will be retailed in aid of a brilliant charitable cause, with £2.50 from each sale of the feeder going direct to Greenfingers, helping them to build even more magical gardens at children’s hospices throughout the UK.”
The Greenfingers birdfeeder will join Deco-Pak’s wider birdfeeder and bird house product range. Launched at Glee 2013, the new collection has already garnered a strong response from the industry, with garden centres, multiple retailers and department stores already registering their interest in stocking products in their 2014/2015 offerings.
