ABF The Soldiers’ Charity has announced its first ever show garden at Chelsea Flower Show 2014. The garden, by award-winning designer Charlotte Rowe and sponsored by private bank Coutts and global engineering and construction company, Bechtel, marks the centenary of World War One.
The ABF The Soldiers’ Charity’s Garden, will be one of large show gardens on Main Avenue. Titled ‘No Man’s Land,’ it is a conceptual representation of the landscape of World War One and serves as a poignant reminder of the challenges and hardships faced by soldiers 100 years ago, while highlighting the work of The Soldiers’ Charity helping those facing challenges and hardships today.
As the British Army’s national Charity, The Soldiers’ Charity provides financial grants to individuals, and gives grants to specialist charities which support the wider Army family.
The Charity has worked with soldiers, veterans and Army families since 1944, providing support in times of need. Their oldest beneficiary last year was 107, the youngest just a few months old.
