ITV's 'Text Santa' Appeal.

We were delighted to be asked to help out with another of Diarmuid’s charity make-overs and were more than happy to supply our goods for such a worthy cause.

Dandy’s Topsoil and Garden Centre were contacted by an ITV official for 'This Morning' in early December, for help providing products for a makeover being done on a garden as part of the ‘Text Santa’ appeal being run by ITV.
The chosen garden is located at the Hereford branch of WRVS, a community centre which supports older people.

Many of the visitors to the branch are avid gardeners so the centre was keen to get involved, pitching their wish for an improved growing space and garden to enjoy. After the centre won out ahead of other charitable causes, Dandy’s were approached with a request to supply some gardening and landscaping supplies to get the transformation of the garden off the ground.

A Dandy’s delivery vehicle was duly despatched, loaded up with over ten tonnes of gardening products and the delivery was made early in the morning to allow Diarmuid and his team ample time to get the garden finished.

The first part of the make-over was shown on 'This Morning' at 11am on 21st December 2011, with the final part set to air the following morning on 22nd December.

This isn’t the first time Dandy’s have come to the aid of shows and charity appeals for ITV; they were asked to supply rock salt to the hit show, 'Dancing on Ice', last year and also supplied Diarmuid Gavin with topsoil and compost for another feature on 'This Morning' earlier this summer.

Managing Director of Dandy’s, Adam Dandy, said; “We were delighted to be asked to help out with another of Diarmuid’s charity make-overs and were more than happy to supply our goods for such a worthy cause. Dandy’s supports as many charitable causes’ as possible; particularly community garden projects, which encourage everyone to get growing, become more environmentally aware and to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible.”

More information about the ‘Text Santa’ appeal and the project from Diarmuid Gavin and ITV can be found on the ITV website.
