Wyevale Garden Centres say Thank You
Our latest garden-sector partner, Wyevale Garden Centres, are getting involved in our Thank You movement and are helping to share the important role gardening played in WW1 in a number of ways.
They’ve involved every in-centre department in their support for us. Across the whole estate you’ll be presented with the Thank You message at almost every turn. Their staff are getting involved in the partnership too, with all of them receiving weekly updates on how much their efforts have raised for the Legion and what it could go towards.
Alex Harding, Store Manager of their flagship Syon Park store, comments that: 'I think The Royal British Legion product launch has been a real success – it’s a great example of fantastic products that really engage with both customers and colleagues alike. It’s proving to be a strong seller, showing the customers are loving the concept and the products; plus the centre team have been excited since the first mention of the partnership. I don’t think I have heard a customer talk about it without using the words amazing or fantastic!'
In addition to sharing our Thank You message with their customers, they are giving them the opportunity to relax and think about what it really means at their Thank You Afternoon Teas. They are running 3 of these, with the last scheduled for 7 November. Better still, for every Afternoon Tea sold they will make a £1 donation to The Legion. Find your nearest participating store here.
Education is a huge part of our Thank You movement, and that’s why Wyevale Garden Centres are running a special Armistice event for their gardening kids club, The Little Diggers, on the 5 November. Children over the age of 3 years old will be able to plant Armistice bulbs and learn about the importance of Remembrance.
Wyevale Garden Centres really are pulling out all the stops to engage with our movement, and we’re happy to have them on board in thanking all those who served, sacrificed and changed our world.
