Winning garden looks for another award

DONCASTER Deaf Trust’s award winning garden at the Chelsea Flower Show could pick up another title if the town rallies round.

Voting has started for the RHS’s prestigious People’s Choice Award, which is the only award at Chelsea decided by public vote and not the judges.

The Deaf Trust, based at Leger Way, collected a silver-gilt flora award in the urban spaces category in its first ever entry at the world’s best flower show.

Now the Trust is hoping Doncaster residents will show their support by logging onto http://bit.ly/mow65h to register a vote before 4pm tomorrow.

All those who vote online will be entered into a free prize draw for tickets to the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show in July.

The urban garden was designed by Graham Bodle, and will be enjoyed after the event by the students and staff at the Doncaster Deaf College when it is rebuilt in the grounds.
