After a busy season supplying Britain’s gardeners with quality, reliable tools, the team at Darlac came up with an idea to support one of our favourite charities – Greenfingers. For a week, we set-up a pop-up store in the warehouse stocked with a variety of products and invited everyone working at the site to buy some.

With the number of keen gardeners in the company, we were optimistic of raising a good amount of cash for the charity, but we weren’t prepared for the generosity of our colleagues!
In the end, we raised £1,750 for Greenfingers. Steve Hubbard, Warehouse Manager at our Kentford site said “I couldn’t believe how keen everyone was to spend their money for charity this close to Christmas! It was amazing.”
