We were approached by producers for the show to see if we would be willing to be build/donate a garden building for the ITV show Love Your Garden presented by Alan Titchmarsh.
Lance Sergeant Cumberland was leading a foot patrol in Helmand Province in 2009 when he was caught in the blast of an improvised explosive device. He lost his left leg below the knee and right leg above the knee. Lance Sergeant Cumberland refused help from his men and continued to direct them from where he lay throughout the Taliban ambush that followed the blast. He even had to tourniquet his own legs until the fire fight was over and the medics arrived. Lance Sergeant Cumberland now works for the Defence Medical Welfare Service for the Aged Veteran Welfare Support Project which focuses on supporting the over-65s who are in hospital and their families.
A contemporary garden was created for the whole family along with the garden room donated and built by us. This is to be used as a craft room and also a home office. We are incredibly proud to have been able to support the whole family in making a dream a reality.
The episode of Love Your Garden featuring one of our bespoke rooms will air sometime in July 2018.
