UK Greetings presents PG Live champers prize to Diverse Gifts


Things were bubbling over at London’s Diverse Gifts recently when owner Anita Thorpe took charge of a magnum of Champagne thanks to UK Greetings.

The Moët & Chandon found its way to the Brixton store with UKG national account manager Lee Gale who turned delivery boy for the day after Anita won the publisher’s big competition at the recent PG Live.

“Following a fantastic time at PG Live, showcasing a number of beautiful new card collaborations and our fabulous Collage brand, Lee got the pleasure of presenting the Champagne,” UKG HR manager Laura Roderick told PG Buzz.

Having been trading for eight years, Diverse specialises in selling unique and ethical products from local and Black artists and designers, and Laura added: “Following her visit to the UK Greetings stand at PG Live, Anita expressed her interest in both our beautiful Bouffants & Broken Hearts and collaborative AfroTouch ranges which she feels would be suitable for her customer base, as well as our Eco gift dressings.”

Bouffants & Broken Hearts has been developed by UKG in collaboration with renowned international artist Kendra Dandy and was shortlisted in the Best Diversity & Inclusion Range at The Henries 2022, and the publisher this year launched a partnership with Georgina Fihosy, the creative force behind AfroTouch – also a shortlister this year and a finalist in the same category at The Henries 2021.
