Leading home improvement and garden wholesaler, Decco has raised over £5,000 for Greenfingers Charity at its Newton Abbot trade show dinner.
Decco’s Chief Operating Officer, Charlie Lacey is pictured presenting a cheque for £5,175 to Boyd Douglas Davies - Chief Executive Officer, Hillview Group on behalf of Greenfingers.
The trade show took place on 10 October at Sandy Park, Exeter, one of seven similar regional events held by Decco every year to support the independent market both in the High Street and in garden centre retail. The dinner was attended by over 200 guests including customers and employees of Decco at Newton Abbot, and many Decco suppliers.
- Keith Willey, manager of Decco Newton Abbot commented, “We had a great night with generous contributions from our guests, including some fantastic contributions from Scotts, Neudorff, Hozelock, Crown, AkzoNobel, Spear & Jackson and Ronseal.”
- Linda Petrons, Head of Fundraising & Communications at Greenfingers Charity added, “We are absolutely staggered by the amazing amount raised. With more Greenfingers gardens in the pipeline this fantastic donation will certainly help to make a difference to more life-limited children and their families, who spend time in hospices across the UK.”
