Bidding for PwC garden auction tops £30k

A mystery bidder has pledged £30,000 in a PricewaterhouseCoopers-backed auction to buy a Prince's Trust garden on display at the Chelsea Flower Show.

The eventually successful bidder will be able to recreate the garden in its entirety at their chosen location at the show. The previous highest bid was £3,050.

The auction is inspired by PwC’s 1kby2k scheme, which aims to help 1000 young people into business. Interested bidders should visit Yahoo.

The Prince’s Trust is one of the prestigious Show Garden Exhibitors at The Chelsea Flower Show with the support and sponsorship of PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Owning the garden is being billed as a unique opportunity as it will incorporate a personally signed momento from HRH The Prince of Wales.

Designed by renowned landscape architect Richard Sneesby, with the help of six young people set up in business by The Prince’s Trust, the garden is symbolic of the Trust’s “1kby2k” partnership with PricewaterhouseCoopers to help 1000 young people into business by the end of 2000.

Sneesby said: ‘The garden reflects the Trust’s youthful, dynamic spirit.’

Prince’s Trust Trading Limited will donate £20,000 towards ensuring that professionals can be employed to re-locate the garden with minimal inconvenience to the purchaser.
