Globus Group offers a helping hand to support garden transformation

PPE specialist Globus Group has supported one of the UK's most celebrated Garden Centres and Nurseries – Hillier – on a charity project to transform the garden of a family whose two-year-old son is suffering from sight impacting tumours behind both eyes.

Globus Group was contacted by one of its distributors, GTS, after hearing about the Hillier project to support the Burrell family whose son, Sebastian is suffering from bilateral Retinoblastoma, to see if it could help equip scores of volunteers and workers with protective gloves during the garden transformation.

Around 25 volunteers were joined daily by members of the Hillier team and contractors throughout the 10-day garden makeover and were equipped with a range of the company's performance SHOWA gloves.

Gloves from the range included the SHOWA 370 Black, 306, 380, 310 Green and 451, selected by a Globus Group hand protection specialist due to their enhanced protective features combined with high-level comfort and grip.

The selected gloves are designed for a range of rugged environments including construction, oil and gas, agriculture, manufacturing and highway maintenance so were ideal for the transformation.

"We were delighted to be able to help equip the team of Hillier volunteers and workers on this fantastic project with our SHOWA gloves. There was a lot of heavy duty lifting, shifting and clearing that needed to be done and the result was the creation of a fantastic outdoor space for Sebastian and his family," said James Harrow, Retail Divisional Manager of Globus Group.
