After the RHS show at Hampton Court in 2017 the Blind Veterans UK award winning reception structure, crafted and constructed by Essex Oak Frame, was dismantled and taken to the charity’s training and rehabilitation centre at Brighton, along with other parts of the celebrated garden.
The structure was rebuilt for use by the Blind Veterans Archery club members to keep them sheltered from the elements. The Blind Veterans Archery Club competes all over the country, against both vision-impaired and sighted archers. Some archers use foot-locators and a tactile sight to aim at the target, with a sighted spotter telling them exactly where the arrow hits; other archers have sufficient vision to use a bow-sight.
We were very proud of our part in the creation of the Hampton Court garden, and delighted to support the charity to make the most of its investment by rebuilding the structure in such a fitting site, overlooking the English Channel, and providing shelter for the wonderful veterans who partake in such a challenging sport.
