Charity Roses

Post by Ausrose on 28th May 2014, 05:13

There are many roses on the market that royalties from their sales
go to charity an example of this being Fiona's Wish whereby royalties  go to the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute. At this stage I am compiling a list of roses that provide royalties for a charity this being for an article I am writing for the 2015 Australian Rose Annual. If you know of such a rose and the charity it supports I would be very appreciative if you put it up in this thread.

John you are certainly right there. It was certainly a shame such a brilliant man should meet such an untimely death.

I let google be my friend here

Victor Chang's killer begged for forgiveness as he arrived in Malaysia following his release after 21 years in jail for murdering the respected heart surgeon.

"I made a mistake," Chiew Seng Liew told the Seven network. "I did the wrong thing and made the family suffer ... You know I want to apologise for the family."

A rose that comes to mind is the Peter Brock Foundation Rose. Royalties from this rose go to Variety-a children's charity.

Its a pity we have to lose a person to the other side before someone decides to name a rose after them...... that also was a sad day in motoring history when Brocky lost control of his car in Targa West over here....

Meilland roses have (indirectly) provided a swag of 'cause' renamed roses - 'The Children's Rose (F. Mistral, of course);'Best Friend' (Caprice de Meilland) for the RSPCA, 'Golden Conquest' (Toulouse Lautrec) for diabetes, and many, many more.

Hi Doug.
What a wonderful idea!  You are clever!!  I would like to suggest "The Lion's Rose", a children's cancer research fund.  Also, there is the Jane McGrath rose.  Thumbsup

Thank you Sue and Betsy it would appear there are a lot more "charity roses" than I thought. I can see I am going to finish with a quite extensive list. Just keep them coming.

You're right David.  Google will probably oblige, but it's nice for the forum to scratch their heads too!! 
Another 2 for you Doug:

Best Friend - RSPCA's rose.
Sight Saver - finding for optical research.

I'm still digging for you Doug!   Digger

Ausrose, just checked out of interest, and Treloar's has eight Cause roses - all mentioned above, except Betty Cuthbert.

Here's is Knight's list. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Note that while Black Caviar is not currently affiliated with a cause, the BC connections say they are planning on announcing the beneficiary of rose royalties later this year.

The industry creates a lot of excess horses and a lot of broken-down horses.
And probably not best to get me started on how young they start working the horses.... Except to say: they are often started at 18mths old and are not fully skeletally mature until 5-6 ...  Rant

Having been closely associated with the thoroughbred industry in my early life I never looked at the industry in the way you describe however I always felt hurdling and steeplechase racing was cruel and should be done away with.

Thank fellow posters your help has been fantastic I am now staring to put an article together for the 2015 Australian Rose Annual. On the subject of the Australian Rose Annual if you are a member of a state rose society you will be receiving your copy of the 2014 edition in the not to distant future.

There's also a rose for the CFA, a beautiful fiery colour but the name eludes me at the moment.
I couldn't agree with you more re racing industry wastage (ditto greyhounds) and hurdles issue.
