Pierce is delighted to be sponsoring its designer client John Everiss, to help create a garden for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show celebrating the 75th anniversary of the D-Day Landings.
The ‘D-Day 75 Garden’ will be created by the Chorley-based designer to celebrate the lives of the Normandy veterans. It will be seen by the show’s 2.1 billion global media audience and 166,500 show visitors including HM the Queen.
The garden will be on display at the show between May 21-25 before relocating to a permanent site in Normandy in time for the D-Day anniversary on June 6.
This year is particularly poignant as it will be the final year the charity behind the garden, D-Day Revisited, will send veterans on a pilgrimage to Normandy.
Ben Smith from Pierce said: “John is a really talented gardener and as soon as we heard about his latest project, we knew we wanted to get involved. We’re really proud that our donation will go towards supporting a local business creating a lasting tribute to the D-Day veterans.
“We can’t wait to see the finalised garden and the reactions of the veterans and the Royal family towards this tribute.”
