28th May 2011

All at Stevenson Brothers were delighted to see 'Poppy' the rocking horse featured on the BBC coverage of the 2011 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Alan Titchmarsh was kind enough to mention the beautiful rocking horse on Wednesday's show. You can watch the video on BBC iPlayer, along with further coverage of the Chelsea Flower Show. If you'd like to see 'Poppy', she is mentioned 32 mins and 40 seconds into episode 8.

'Poppy' was specially made by Stevenson Brothers to raise money towards the refurbishment of the Long Ward at The Royal Hospital Chelsea. She was raffled at the 2011 Chelsea Flower Show to raise funds for this through the Chelsea Pensioners' Appeal.

The winning raffle ticket was drawn on Saturday 28th May and more than £10,000 was raised for the charity. Many thanks to all who purchased tickets and congratulations to winning ticket number 21177.
