Eden Project Fundraiser

Recently, we donated our “Hay” coffee table in English walnut and oak for the Big Green Quiz auction (May 10), which was held for the eden project and Southbank Centre Roof Garden and associated education and training programmes. The project created a new urban green space on the roof of the Queen Elizabeth II Hall as part of the Festival of Britain’s 60th anniversary celebrations. The initiative brought together groups of vulnerable people including the homeless, ex-offenders and addicts to transform a concrete roof space into a fabulous summer garden on the Thames. This garden is now open for this year, so please if you are passing do visit.
We were most pleased that the table raised as much as it would have cost to buy from us (£1500).
