RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2022

We are very excited to announce that the Fund will unveil its first ever garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this May.

Funding for the garden is being provided by Project Giving Back, a new support scheme enabling charities to create a garden at the world-renowned show. 

The garden has been designed to allow visitors to sit and reflect on the service and sacrifice of all the RAF and civilian personnel and we hope will inspire viewers to look into their own history and speak to family and friends about their connections to the RAF. 

About the garden

The garden will feature a sculpture of a young pilot looking up at the sky. Standing at four metres tall and constructed from 1,200 layers of laser cut stainless steel, the state-of-the-art sculpture will be imposing and a moving tribute to all those who have served and continue to serve in the RAF. Following Chelsea, the garden will be relocated to a permanent site at London Biggin Hill Airport enabling the legacy to live on.

We are thrilled to be working with multi gold medal winning RHS garden designer and sculptor John Everiss. John, whose father served in the RAF previously designed the DDay 75 Garden in 2019 and the Evaders Garden in 2015.

John's father Stan, a navigator in Stirling bombers, survived after being shot down over occupied France in 1943. After being hidden by local resistance fighters he was eventually guided over the Pyrenees and eventually reunited with his family after four months.
