Visitors can dedicate a rose in the Ever After Garden in Grosvenor Square to a loved one with a donation to The Royal Marsden for The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, a world-leading cancer centre.

In 2022, the garden raised more than £200,000, bringing its total raised to more than £450,000 since 2019.

Fashion journalist Camilla Morton and fashion designer Anya Hindmarch co-founded the garden following the death of their friend and production designer Michael Howells in 2018.

Camilla said: “When you lose someone its not about the gripes or the things that you were irritated with them about; it’s love.”
