ITV Love Your Garden

Hanson’s packed products have featured on national television in ITV’s popular garden makeover programme Love Your Garden presented by Alan Titchmarsh.

Each week the team transforms a garden for those most in need. Hanson’s products, including Multicem and Fast Set PostFix, were used in the first programme of the new series aired at 8pm on June 21 for army veteran Mark, who is Britain’s first triple amputee from the Afghanistan conflict.

“We are delighted to support the project,” said Andy Simpson, Hanson Cement’s packed products national commercial director. “It is amazing to see the garden completely transformed to suit Mark’s need and those of his wife and three children.”

Mark now works for the Royal Marines Association organising fundraising events and offering help and support to other veterans.

His strength and determination has seen him undertake many fundraising expeditions himself, including running across America in 2010 and cycling the coast of Britain in 2012. This year he is planning to complete a charity bike ride with his 12-year-old daughter in aid of a charity for his friend’s child who has a rare form of cancer.

Mark is also a regular motivational speaker, sharing his story and experiences to try and inspire others like himself, that life can get better.
