Get your bid in for a piece of award-winning garden
5:20pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
GENEROUS and green-fingered St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice supporters are being offered the chance to take home a piece of the hospice’s award-winning RHS Tatton Flower Show 25th Anniversary garden.
The hospice’s show garden, created to commemorate St Luke’s Silver anniversary by a team of Foundation Degree Garden and Landscape Design students from Nantwich’s Reaseheath College, wowed judges and the public to win the perfectly appropriate silver medal at the popular annual show.
The garden, awash with eye-catching colours, reflected the many positive aspects of St Luke’s, particularly the loyalty and dedication of its volunteers.
Now, the hospice is putting an array of the garden’s unique signature pieces up for auction. Bids need to be submitted by Friday, September 6.
The items available to buy are: three Sorbus Majestica trees; signed original sculptures by artist Ruth Moilliet; and a curved wooden bench which would make a lovely seat set on top of a low wall or set into landscaping.
Sara Evans, St Luke’s manager of Volunteer Support, said: “The silver medal really was the icing on the cake for what was a wonderful effort by all our volunteers and the team from Reaseheath College led by the garden’s lead designer, Rick Tomlinson.
“We’re delighted to be able to offer a part of this wonderful garden to our supporters.”
Submit your bid to Sara Evans or Lesley Smith on 01606 555690 or 01606 555689 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
