Leading charity, Cancer Research UK has won a Gold Medal at the 2007 Chelsea Flower Show for its garden. Designed by Chelsea Flower Show 2006 Gold Medal winner, Andy Sturgeon, the garden illustrates the charity’s vision, ‘Together we will beat cancer’.

The Cancer Research UK Garden was one of seven show gardens to win a gold medal at what has been tipped as the best Chelsea Flower Show yet. Cancer Research UK’s director of national events, Louise Holland, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled with the garden and delighted that it’s been awarded a gold medal. Andy has once again come up with a fantastic design for Cancer Research UK. The Chelsea Flower Show provides us with an excellent platform to showcase Cancer Research UK’s vision to both new and existing supporters.”

Focusing on the word ‘together’, Andy designed the garden so that all the different elements interlink and lock together. The paths lead from either end drawing people into the heart of the garden, where the modern amphitheatre provides a place for visitors to sit together.

The most dramatic aspect of the garden is an eye catching 30m long sculpture, which consists of five strands of curved oak ribbons that weave together and wind through the garden, connecting it all.
