With a Garden in the City theme, the evening celebrated growth and invited guests to step into a green oasis tucked away in the heart of the city.
Following a busy day at the exhibition, guests were treated to entertainment, including an origami artist and flower man. This week, Learning Resources made a donation to World Land Trust to plant a tree for each of the 80 guests in attendance.
“World Land Trust thanks Learning Resources for its donation on behalf of guests of its customer appreciation event,” said Tracey Butler, communications development officer at World Land Trust. “Funds will be directed to WLT’s Plant a Tree Programme which is helping to restore tropical forests in Brazil, Ecuador and Kenya by creating continuous habitat for wildlife.”
The reception marked the end of a successful exhibition season at Learning Resources. The company launched over 90 new hands-on educational toys in January and scooped a Best New Toy Award at London Toy Fair in the STEM category.
“We really appreciate this opportunity to support the work of the World Land Trust,” said Dennis Blackmore, managing director. “Our customers who come from all over the world were enthusiastic about having a tree planted on their behalf.”
