As you know I won the Bosch Gardening Makeover competition. For the past two months Papa and I have worked our butts off trying to create a nice area for our children to play and enjoy wildlife. I think we achieved what we set out to do and I am very happy with the results. Thank you so much for all your votes. I know some of you voted like crazy and even asked your personal friends to vote for me as well. Of course a big Thank you to Bosch, Coblands Nurseries and GreenThumb for providing tools, plants and lawn care.
I have decided to donate my prize of two Chelsea Flower show tickets and a day with the Daily Telegraphs Helen Yemm to St Helena's Hospice in Colchester, Essex. My lovely mum spent her last days at the hospice back in 2006 and the joy she received from the Hospice garden was immense. My Lovely Nan Grace also spent her last days there back in 1991. They have beautiful grounds at the hospice and the staff are second to none.

I just know the patients at St Helena's will get more from this prize than anyone else and I hope that it will bring a few smiles to them during such a difficult time.
Me and my five Brothers, (pictured below with my Aunt Jill) who I'm sure wont mind me speaking for will be eternally grateful to the devoted, hardworking, loving, caring staff at St Helena's. We would have been lost without you all. Thank you x
