Garden designer’s idea
Bring a rural Zimbabwean classroom and school garden to the Chelsea Flower Show.
KISS was appointed undertake a solid media relations campaign to disrupt the traditional Chelsea scene, capture the hearts and minds of the British public and launch CAMFED’s #SeeGrowth campaign.
We developed a strong bank of press release material and arranged interviews with key CAMFED spokespeople before, during and after the Chelsea Flower Show with media such as BBC News, The Telegraph, BBC Radio 4, BBC World Service, The Financial Times and Good Housekeeping. In total CAMFED was featured in over 63 consumer and trade outlets via print, online, radio and TV - many of these media outlets would not normally place such focus on the show. KISS estimated the total audience reach during the campaign was around 100 million.
