DIY shed sponsors garden for heroes
Published: 24 May, 2010
LONDON: A garden sponsored by B&Q and Birmingham City Council to raise funds for servicemen and women will be on show at the Chelsea Flower Show this week.
The display aims to raise awareness and funds for the charity Help the Heroes with a Road to Recovery theme that depicts a soldier's journey from helicopter to hospital to home.
The garden also features a Help for Heroes limited edition petunia mix which will go on sale in all 330 B&Q stores this weekend. The mix costs £5 and Help for Heroes will receive £2 from the sale of the pack. Last year over £55 000 was raised for the charity through the sale of the mix. Birmingham City Council has won 18 times in previous visits to the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Help for Heroes was launched in October 2007 and gives practical aid to wounded servicemen and women.
