Decco raises over £5000.00 for Greenfingers

Published: 7 November 2017 - Sue Deane

Decco has raised over £5,000 for the Greenfingers Charity at its Newton Abbot trade show dinner.  Decco’s chief operating officer Charlie Lacey is pictured presenting a cheque for £5,175 to Hillview Group’s chief executive officer Boyd Douglas Davies on behalf of Greenfingers.

The trade show took place on October 10 at Sandy Park, Exeter, one of seven similar regional events held by Decco every year to support the independent market both in the high street and in garden centre retail.  The 200 guests included customers and employees of Decco at Newton Abbot and many Decco suppliers. 

Decco Newton Abbot manager Keith Willey commented: “We had a great night with generous contributions from our guests including some fantastic contributions from Scotts, Neudorff, Hozelock, Crown, AkzoNobel, Spear & Jackson and Ronseal.”

Greenfingers Charity head of fundraising & communications Linda Petrons added: “We are absolutely staggered by the amazing amount raised. With more Greenfingers gardens in the pipeline this fantastic donation will certainly help to make a difference to more life-limited children and their families who spend time in hospices across the UK.”

Decco only provides its retail customers with top name brands, offering a strategically selected range of the leading garden, home improvement and housewares names.  It has seven supply locations around the country giving a total of over 350,000 square feet of warehousing space and holding over £10m worth of stock, enabling it to offer top quality service and availability to independent retailers and garden centres throughout the UK.
