HornbyWhitefoot at the GIMA Awards

Kimberley and Robbie once again attended the GIMA awards at the Celtic Manor hotel in South Wales – this time as privileged sponsors of the champagne that was given out to the 16 winners.   

Aside from handing out bottles of champagne whilst continuously updating the GIMA twitter feed throughout, both also managed to spend quality time with clients Forest, Deco-Pak, DLF/Johnsons Lawn Seed and Briers. 

Behind the scenes, two releases went out – one to confirm all the winners announced that evening and the other regarding the total raised for Greenfingers Garden Re-Leaf (a whopping £140,000) and the date for next year’s fundraising day – 17th March.
