Zest and Pengelly Garden Centre in School GYO Partnership
Garden furniture, grow your own and decorative garden structure specialist, Zest is working with Pengelly Garden Centre on a project to support five schools local to Pengelly with grow your own initiatives. And it’s all thanks to a competition run by Glee offering one lucky visitor a £1000 voucher to spend with an exhibitor of their choice.
The winner was Sarah Daniel the owner of Pengelly Garden Centre who decided to spend the voucher with Zest with a view to raising money to support local schools with a range of GYO products and seeds for gardening projects.
With the voucher Sarah purchased a Garden Bar and Two Stool set, two Emily 3 Seater Benches, a Veg Bed, and Sleeper Cold Frames. The plan is to sell the Zest products at Pengelly to fundraise for school projects and use some of the proceeds to buy more Zest products so Pengelly can go on to sell them and support more schools in the area.
When Zest MD, Steve Morgan, heard of Sarah’s idea he organised the donation of further GYO products, donating five Zest Economy Potting Tables and five Zest Deep Root 1m Planters to help get the first five schools off to a great growing start.
Commenting on the Pengelly schools initiative, Steve said:
“I was obviously delighted that Sarah chose to spend her prize on Zest products, and when I found out how she planned to use her win to help local schools, I thought it would be a good idea for Zest to boost her brilliant idea with more items to help with a really good cause.”
“It was of course lovely to win, and I knew from the outset that I wanted to put Pengelly’s good fortune towards helping local schoolchildren to get growing. The Zest GYO range seemed an appropriate way to get the idea off the ground and I’m thrilled that Zest has chosen to top up the prize by donating even more product to the schools in question.”
