Yorkshire Post - - NEWS -

A GAR­DEN de­signed to in­spire peo­ple to sup­port a char­ity will be on show in York­shire.

It will be ded­i­cated to Macmil­lan Cancer Sup­port and will be on dis­play at the Har­ro­gate Spring Flower Show in April. The gar­den, de­signed by Colin Grif­fin and Oliver Rut­man, has been planned to sym­bol­ise the im­por­tance of gifts in wills to Macmil­lan as a char­ity.

Mr Grif­fin said: “Macmil­lan do in­cred­i­ble work sup­port­ing peo­ple through one of life’s scari­est and most chal­leng­ing ex­pe­ri­ences and we were keen to work with them to high­light how the money gifted to them pos­i­tively sup­ports peo­ple through a very tur­bu­lent time in their lives.”

The team aimed to cre­ate an in­ti­mate, quiet and re­flec­tive gar­den for peo­ple to con­tem­plate their legacy.

The gar­den will be on dis­play at the show from Thurs­day, April 23, to Sun­day, April 26. Macmil­lan Cancer Sup­port said gifts would help the char­ity help peo­ple deal with the phys­i­cal, emo­tional and fi­nan­cial im­pact of cancer.
