Joanna Lumley endorses #Glovies

Earlier this year at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, a steady stream of celebrities visited the Briers’ stand to pose for #Glovies – including actress Joanna Lumley, who posed for a Greenfingers ‘glovie’ and was gifted a pair of Briers bestselling gloves.

Since then, Briers and Greenfingers Charity have received a handwritten letter from Joanna, in which she praises both the work of the charity, and also her new gardening gloves. In the letter Joanna said simply “I love my gloves” and praised Greenfingers for their inspirational work creating places of relaxation, play and reflection in children’s hospices across the country.

The UK’s leading garden gloves, wellington boots, children’s gardening products and giftware supplier has been supporting Greenfingers Charity with its #Glovies glove selfies on social media since 2015.  The Greenfingers gloves themselves each represent a donation from Briers of 35p, which has so far helped raise over £18,400 for the children’s hospice garden charity.
