News - garden releaf winners

Rolawn has raised over £300 so far for the Greenfingers Charity by holding a ‘Garden Re-Leaf Day’ internal Spring Fair and running an on-line sales promotion.

The charity’s annual ‘Garden Re-leaf Day’ took place on Friday 17th March and Rolawn’s staff took part in fun fair games, Hook a Duck, Rolawn’s strongest man and woman, Quoits, Skittles, to name just a few, had a raffle with donated prizes, a cake stall and held a gardening quiz. In addition to which, the company is donating £2.50 for every bulk bag of bark bought via their website over the course of Garden Re-Leaf Day and the subsequent week.

Rolawn’s Sales & Marketing Director, Jonathan Hill commented: “We are delighted to continue our support for Garden Re-Leaf Day, every year we have some fun and knowing we are contributing to the brilliant Greenfingers Charity is fantastic. I would like to thank everyone for taking part and a special thanks to those who baked cakes, made honey, donated raffle prizes, and organised the whole event. It was a great team effort, pulling together this sort of activity always takes far more work than you anticipate and no one person can do it alone.”
