A garden inspired by our work is to be created at this year's Chelsea Flower Show - and we can't wait to be there again!

Designers Patricia Thirion and Janet Honour of A Touch of France Garden Design will create the garden, while international law firm Herbert Smith Freehills will sponsor it in support of WaterAid, for the second year running.

Barbara Frost, WaterAid UK Chief Executive, said: "We are thrilled to be involved in the centenary of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show with Herbert Smith Freehills and A Touch of France. 

"Our garden is symbolic of how WaterAid's work can transform lives. With safe water close to home, women and children are able to spend less time collecting, or queuing, for water and more time generating an income for their family. This is the start of their journey out of poverty."

Jonathan Scott, Senior Partner, Herbert Smith Freehills, added: "We are honoured to be supporting WaterAid in this innovative and engaging initiative again this year. The profile provided by the Chelsea Flower Show last year helped raise awareness of the really important and meaningful work that WaterAid does. 

"We are keen to continue working with them to enable sufficient access to clean water and sanitation in some of the poorest parts of the world."

A Touch of France Garden Design is delighted to work once again with Herbert Smith Freehills and WaterAid to raise awareness of our work. 

Last year, ex-Beatle Ringo Starr opened our garden for us. Who knows who it will be this year!
