HOPE AND HAP­PI­NESS

Berkshire Life - - THIS MONTH -

David Emanuel, vice pres­i­dent of The Royal Wind­sor Rose and Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety, and cocre­ator of Lady Diana Spencer’s wed­ding dress, has spread cheer by de­liv­er­ing pots of sun­flow­ers to Wind­sor busi­nesses to dis­play out­side their premises. The ges­ture is part of a Hope and Hap­pi­ness cam­paign, spon­sored by Berke­ley Homes, with the aim of bright­en­ing sur­round­ings dur­ing the pan­demic.

Works an­tic­i­pates in­creased de­mand from new clients who have lost their jobs, been be­reaved or suf­fered ill­ness dur­ing the pan­demic.

Smart Works Read­ing’s Chair Sarah Burns MBE pre­sented the tro­phy to the win­ning polo team,

MT Vik­ings. She said:

“Ev­ery pound will help make a dif­fer­ence to the lives of our clients.”

Clé de Peau Beauté has just been an­nounced at the spon­sor of the Guards Ladies Char­ity Polo Tour­na­ment from 2021.

The RWRHS and Berke­ley Homes, who also do­nated

2,000 pack­ets of dwarf

Sun­flower ‘Soleil’ seeds, have seen res­i­dents at their Taplow River­side, Wood­hurst Park and Bromp­ton Gar­dens de­vel­op­ments snap pic­tures of their home­grown sun­flow­ers.

David said: “I am thrilled to be a part of such a pos­i­tive and up­lift­ing cam­paign. It is great to see the com­mu­nity com­ing to­gether. We hope that the pack­ets of seeds will have also in­spired some bud­ding gar­den­ers ahead of next year’s Sum­mer Show!”

The RWRHS was due to cel­e­brate its 115th an­nual

Royal Wind­sor Sum­mer Show in July, but when the show was can­celled due to the pan­demic the Hope and Hap­pi­ness project was launched in­stead.

Ben­jamin Ivey, sales di­rec­tor at Berke­ley Homes, said: “It is great to see how a small ges­ture can have such a pos­i­tive im­pact.”
