Win 2 members’ tickets for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show sponsored by M&G Investments on Wednesday 24th May. And please donate to Cancer Research UK

I have to be honest here.  Even though we sponsor it, whenever I go to the Chelsea Flower Show I am reminded of bleak Sundays being dragged around garden centres as a child, hoping there is at least a pets section with some rabbits or something in it.  Or some swings.  Nevertheless, many people love flowers and plants.

So, in support of CASCAID, the UK asset management industry’s effort to raise over a million pounds for Cancer Research UK, I’ve got hold of two gold dust tickets for the RHS Chelsea Flower Show on Wednesday 24th May 2017.  These are especially rare and valuable as they are only available for members of the RHS on this date, and in any case sell out quickly.

It’s difficult to work out how to maximise the amount of cash we raise for Cancer Research UK.  We could run a raffle or auction for the tickets, but that makes it tricky if we want people to increase the value of their giving through Gift Aid.  So I’m going to simply rely on people’s goodwill and ask that if you enter the competition you might consider making a donation (a fiver? Tenner?) to the fantastic cause through my existing Cancer Research UK fund raising page. Whether you donate or not will honestly make no difference to your chances of winning. But karma.

To win the two tickets, valid from 8am to 8pm on Wednesday 24th May, please name the plant shown in the photo (chosen by our emerging market bond fund manager Claudia Calich who will be volunteering at the M&G garden at times during the show, so please go and say “hi”) and send the correct answer to bondteam@bondvigilantes.co.uk by midday UK time on Wednesday 17th May 2017.  The full terms and conditions can be found here.  Good luck!

The value of investments will fluctuate, which will cause prices to fall as well as rise and you may not get back the original amount you invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
