LifestyleGarden® thanks keyworkers with special giveaway

It’s hard to think of a way that will truly demonstrate our gratitude for all the keyworkers that are holding this country together during the Covid-19 lockdown. LifestyleGarden® - one of the UK’s leading outdoor furniture suppliers – knew they couldn’t sit back and do nothing which is why the company recently launched a special #FeetUpWithLifestyleGarden giveaway as a way of showing their thanks for these incredible human beings.


Running across the company’s social media platforms, the LifestyleGarden® team asked its followers to nominate the keyworkers in their life for the chance to win a set of the company’s rainbow-inspired Nassau dining sets.


10 sets were up for grabs and followers made nominations in their droves, with over 60 entries received. A random winner generator selected the lucky recipients who were quickly informed of their win. However, saying thank you from the team just didn’t feel enough so they also enlisted the help of TV’s Helen George, also known as Trixie from the popular BBC drama, Call the Midwife. In a short video, Helen congratulated all the winners and thanked them for everything they have done and continue to do as we work to navigate this pandemic.

Paul Cohen, Sales Director at LifestyleGarden®, said: “Keyworkers deserve every bit of praise we can give them, but they also deserve to have somewhere they can put their feet up and relax after a long shift helping on the frontline or keeping our essential businesses functioning. We selected our Nassau sets as they are available in peony pink, pastel green and honey yellow, reminiscent of the rainbow emblem that has become synonymous with the nation’s support of keyworkers.


“The winners are currently eagerly awaiting delivery of their prizes and we’re excited to share photos of them once they have everything set up. For now, I’d just like to thank all those that nominated keyworkers, to Helen for her fantastic video, and of course the biggest thanks to those keyworkers that are keeping us safe during these unprecedented times. You are a true inspiration to us all.”
