Dobbies launches ‘Not Your Average Community’ Christmas campaign
Dobbies has launched a new campaign in which community groups could win £1,000 to spend on trees, lights and decorations to brighten up their local area for Christmas.
The Not Your Average Community campaign follows on from the garden centre chain’s Not Your Average People and Not Your Average Gardener campaigns, which saw Dobbies recognise outstanding and talented individuals making a difference in their local areas.
A member of the Dobbies’ team will help each winning group select their Christmas items by providing advice on the best trees, lighting and decorations. The winning groups will be invited to enjoy afternoon tea in their local Dobbies’ restaurant.
Graeme Jenkins, chief executive of Dobbies, said: “With Christmas just around the corner, we’re looking to spread some festive joy with our next community initiative. We are looking forward to hearing from community groups from across the UK who want to brighten up their local area for their friends or neighbours. Whether they need outdoor lighting, Christmas trees or festive finishing touches, our teams will be on hand to help them make the most of their prize.”
To apply, community groups, clubs, charities and neighbourhoods will be invited to complete an online application form where they will provide information on their group and why it is important to their local area. They will also need to say what trees, lights and decorations they need to make a difference to their space.
Entries will close for all applicants at 5pm on Monday 22 November, and winners will be selected and contacted by the end of November. Prizes will be collected at the start of December.
