Vivid Arts to launch Greenfingers Rabbit at Glee

Leading garden décor manufacturer, Vivid Arts, is pleased to announce its first product tie up with Greenfingers Charity, set to be launched at Glee in September.

A brand-new rabbit figurine, equipped with a garden spade and bearing the trademark Greenfingers green gloves, will be available for retailers to order at the show next month, with the aim of raising £16,000 for the charity.

The realistic ornament, made from high quality resin, stands at approximately 18cm high and will look adorable in any garden setting, as well as adding character and a sense of wildlife to any outdoor space that both adults and children will enjoy.

A full set of POS material will be available from Vivid Arts for retailers to promote the rabbit instore.

Perfect for animal lovers, the rabbit is a “must stock” product for garden centres, with £2 from every rabbit sold going to Greenfingers Charity to support its work in building magical gardens for life-limited children and their families in hospices around the country.

Paul McGuire, Sales Director at Vivid Arts said:  We’re absolutely delighted to be able to support the Greenfingers Charity with this unique, limited edition product. It will have broad consumer appeal, in turn presenting a fantastic opportunity for the garden centre community to raise a £16,000 donation for such a worthwhile cause during Spring 2019.

Linda Petrons, Director of Fundraising and Communications at Greenfingers said: “We are thrilled that Vivid Arts has chosen to support us with this delightful Greenfingers rabbit.  We are sure that it will be popular with nature fans everywhere and the money raised will help to make a difference to the many children and families who spend time in Greenfingers gardens right across the UK.”

The Greenfingers team will be exhibiting at Glee on the HTA stand in Hall 19, stand no 19P69.  Vivid Arts will showcase the Greenfingers rabbit in Hall 20, stands 20Y10-Z11.
