Old Citizen, Ronel Lehman at Chelsea Flower Show


26 May 2018
Ten years ago,  Old Citizen Ronel Lehman chaired the £6.5 million Capital Appeal to build a new Demelza Children's Hospice in Eltham, South London. Jo Thompson, a garden designer, offered them the opportunity to name her first garden at the Chelsea Flower Show after the charity. The Demelza artisan garden won a Silver Gilt Award and the charity raised its profile with substantial media and broadcast coverage.

Jo has return
ed every year since to Chelsea and is a Gold award-winning, acclaimed garden designer. 'It has been something of a tradition for me to be pictured at her Show garden,' says Ronel, 'and remind her that her incredible journey began with us working together. Each year, I also ask will she do another garden, and every year we laugh, when she says no!'
