Early in December, Urban Planters teamed up with one of our valued clients, St James’s Place Wealth Management Group to run an Elf Hunt for charity.
The one-night event raised a whopping £2,673 for Newark Women’s Aid, an amount which was matched by SJP, ready to give to other local worthy causes.
The Elf Hunt was a huge success, with around 150 children taking part, searching for clues to lead them to elves on a trail through three neighbouring gardens.
The gardens were adorned with a range of decorations, put up by the owners to add to the festive feel, and elf helpers led the children along the trail, telling a story which unfolded as each clue was found.
SJP’s local charity foundation had approached us to ask if we could supply a range of house plants to sell in the Chief Elf’s Hut at the end of the trail, with all proceeds going to charity.
We supplied a range of house plants to add to the other products on sale at the hut and the green-fingered elf helpers were on hand to advise people on the right plants for their spaces and lifestyles.
The money raised will make a huge impact to Newark Women’s Refuge. They are currently supporting around 25 families, all in need of urgent help and supplies.
SJP also donated a Christmas hamper to each of the families at the shelter.
