Paskett Public Relations, the UK’s leading gardening and lifestyle pr agency, has announced that it will be working with the National Garden Scheme (the NGS) on a charitable basis.
The agency, which was formed in 1976, will help promote the charity’s fantastic work. This partnership ties in with the NGS’s rebrand which was launched this year to celebrate its 90th anniversary, and marked the start of its new strategy to increase public awareness about its work.
Paskett PR works with many gardening brands including Wilkinson Sword, Cobra, The Posh Shed Company, the BASF Nemasys and Nemaslug ranges, Forest Garden and, most recently handled the pr for Hillier’s record-breaking 2017 Chelsea Flower Show garden, where Paskett PR created the popular Memory Tree campaign.
Holly Daulby, Paskett PR’s account director, will be heading up the work and commented: “The NGS carry out some amazing work so we want to help them shout about it to raise their profile, and ultimately raise more money for a range of fantastic causes. We have a long history with the organisation and many of our clients already support the charity in various ways. Planning is already well underway and we’ve got some exciting campaigns up our sleeves - we can’t wait to get started!”
George Plumptre, chief executive of the NGS, said: “Paskett PR has a fantastic reputation in the industry and I have worked with the team there for many years. We are delighted that they have kindly chosen to donate their services to the NGS and are very grateful for their support”.
The NGS was founded in 1859 and has grown to be the most significant charitable funder of nursing and caring charities in the country, donating over £50 million so far, through money raised via its open gardens programme. Currently, more than 3,700 gardens nationwide open their gates for the NGS each year.
