Our 'Forest Bathing Garden' wins Best in Show at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024

21 May 2024

We’re excited to announce we have been awarded Best in Show at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2024. This means our garden scored the highest amount of points from the judging panel out of all the Show Gardens.

Catherine Woodhead, our CEO says: “We are absolutely delighted to win Best in Show Garden and a Gold medal for our garden. This wouldn’t have been possible without our garden designer, Ula Maria engaging with the muscle wasting and weakening community to create such an incredible garden that really embodies what our community experiences from their conditions and needs from the charity.” 

A huge well done to Ula Maria for designing a multi-award winning garden and thank you Project Giving Back for your generous funding. We’re blown away and want to dedicate all our successes to our community. 

Thank you to Project Giving Back for this once in a lifetime opportunity to do this. 

We’re the leading charity for more than 110,000 people in the UK live with one of over 60 muscle wasting or weakening conditions. 

The stories of people in our community inspired Ula Maria’s accessible forest bathing garden design. 

Raising awareness of these rare conditions is so important and we continue to fund groundbreaking research, campaign for access to treatments and provide support for families living with diagnoses right now. 

Together we are changing the future of muscle wasting conditions.
