Solihull is the site of a new Breast Cancer Haven centre, which opened in October last year. We were lucky enough today to attend a special preview of their new gardens.

As well as the opportunity to enjoy the sunshine we had the chance to be one of the first to view the gardens, that have been beautifully landscaped due to a very generous donation from the Estee Lauder Foundation. Anna Bartle, VP of Corporate Affairs at Estee Lauder, was one of the special guests at the garden preview today.

The Evelyn H. Lauder garden is intended as a space for relaxation and healing for visitors to the centre, offering space for yoga and meditation classes, relaxation and outdoor seating. In addition, fresh produce for the centre’s kitchen will be grown in raised beds in the garden.

The gardens were designed by Ruth Gwynn, who won Gold and Best in Show for her garden at RHS Malvern recently; and created with many generous donations and the help of Rupert Keys, from Keyscape Landscape Design.  Both designers were on hand to talk guests through the centre’s newest treatment space.

The event was rounded off by the unveiling of a special sculpture of the Breast Cancer Haven logo, the finishing touch, amongst the peonies, roses, irises and jasmine.
