It’s the time of year when the weather starts to change – the evenings are lighter, the breeze is a little warmer, and we finally have some sunshine forecast for the coming Easter bank holiday weekend. It’s a time when many of us start to think about improving our gardens, ready to spend time out in the sunshine over the coming months.
That’s when, for many of us, we may call on the services of GreenThumb – a local and national lawn treatment service which leaves your grass looking its best, ready for all those summer barbecues and picnics. GreenThumb have five branches across Nottingham, and we’re thrilled to announce that they have chosen to fundraise for our Big Appeal for Nottingham Children’s Hospital.
For every new customer that signs up to any GreenThumb Nottingham branch in 2019, a £5 donation will be made to the Big Appeal – all new customers need to do is remember to quote “NCH” when placing an order, and the £5 donation will be made. What could be simpler?
We’re delighted to be working with GreenThumb, who have always been committed to supporting local charitable causes. The money raised through the Nottingham branches will go towards our Big Appeal, which aims to enhance facilities, equipment and services for young patients and their families at Nottingham Children’s Hospital.
So, this spring why not do something that will help your lawn look its best – at the same time as helping make a difference to young patients at Nottingham Children’s Hospital? If you’d like to place an order with GreenThumb, and support our Big Appeal at the same time, simply get in touch with your local GreenThumb Notts branch: www.GreenThumb.co.uk/Branch and be sure to quote “NCH”.
Here’s to a summer of outdoor fun!
