St Dunstan's Rose

This year we are celebrating 100 years of Blind Veterans UK, this is how we celebrated our 75th birthday..

St Dunstan's Rose

On 11th July 1991, the St Dunstan's Rose was launched at the Hampton Court Palace International Rose Show, to celebrate 75 years of the charity. 

The St Dunstan's Rose is a floribunda or cluster rose, with a lemon yellow colour. Garden Gordon Kirkham of Heaton Park, Prestwick worked on the rose for three years. The rose was lanched along side the Paul McCartney rose.

Blind veteran Tom Hart attended the Hampton Court Palace International Rose Show to see it being launched.
