Funds raised for children's hospice gardens

Turf grower and supplier of topsoil and landscaping products, Rolawn, has donated £2,500 to the charity Greenfingers, as part of the annual Garden Re-Leaf event.

The money was generated through an online initiative whereby Rolawn pledged to donate 5% of the value of all sales made through their website, from Thursday 17th to Sunday 20th March.

The company advertised the pledge on their website, newsletters and social media, to encourage people who may have been considering a future purchase of their turf and landscaping products to bring forward their order, to bolster the value of the donation.

Jonathan Hill, sales director for Rolawn, said, “Over the years that we have worked with Greenfingers, we have come to understand how important their work is, creating safe, stimulating outdoor spaces for children spending time in hospices. We have seen the difference that each donation makes to the lives of these children and to their families."

Linda Petrons, director of fundraising and communications for Greenfingers Charity, commented, “Thank you to the team at Rolawn. Your support of the Greenfingers Charity Garden ReLeaf day is so very much appreciated.”

As well as fundraising for Greenfingers, Rolawn has provided products to support the creation and renovation of hospice gardens.
