We are delighted that the charity part of each sale will be split equally between TAG and The Marc Bolan School of Music and Film.
OFFICIAL ROSE CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION:
"A flamboyant and striking Floribunda befitting of the late Marc Bolan. A versatile rose that can be used as either a tall Floribunda, or a small Climber. The blooms are an unusual combination of purple with a yellow eye and lavender reverse and form an attractive ruffled shape reminiscent of a feather boa. Named by the T-Rex Action Group, legal guardians of Marc Bolan's Rock Shine. £2.00 from the sale of each rose will be divided equally between TAG and the Marc Bolan School of Music and Film in Sierra Leone which helps local children, orphans and those rescued from the blood diamond mines. See www.marcbolanschool.org for further details."
We are delighted to say that due to a wonderful donation we have now raised the money needed for the rose. Now all we have to do is to wait for Mother Nature to Grow the Roses. We do still have some Wall Plaques in stock which we had already bought from the artist who created for them.
We will be offering these to people who do not already have wall plaques as a Special Offer Package along with a Rose Bush when they become available. What a brilliant way to start 2013! We are of course also delighted that once the roses go on sale the charity part of each sale will be split equally between TAG and The Marc Bolan School of Music and Film.
Limited to just 100 Worldwide all individually numbered. All those who buy a plaque will be able to buy rose bushes as soon as they are available and it is expected that the 2013 release of these rose bushes will sell-out to those who buy plaques. They will then be on general sale as of 2014.
There are four options: Silver, Gold Terracotta (indoor) & Terracotta (outdoor). The four finishes include an Outdoor Terracotta finish. The other three options are all designed for interior display and are backed with felt. The Outdoor Terracotta option does not have the felt backing. All the plaques have in embedded brass hanging loop on the reverse, allowing them to be hang on any wall with a picture hook or pin.
I just wanted to let you know that the Rose Fund Wall Plaque arrived here today "safe & sound". And I'm stunned! I love the plaque, but even more, I love how you all took care of sending it as a present! The wrap and the little "bits & bobs" were lovely, it was a pleasure to open the parcel! You really made my day, tanx a lot for your loving care! Laser love, Gudrun (Germany)
Freddie Canwell - "Got my Marc bolan plaque from tag its stunning and so are the freebies that came with it only a 100 made, thanks fee & kev. Imagine because of these plaques marc bolan roses will be on sale next year." Yes indeed Freddie, though we couldn't have done it without the donations too. And we do need to sell the remaining plaques to meet the full costs!

Yes its been quite a while coming, but here is the latest update. We'd like to thank Vicki Collins from Australia for her donation of 30 AUD which converted to £19.53 and to the donation posted in from the UK. I am so sorry I have mislaid your name. If you read this please contact us so I can add it.
We'd like to thank Kevin Wilson for his donation of £23.95. With our 'round up' of 50p this Donation means we are now at the 'Three Quarter' Marc of our target:-) Brilliant! Tanx XXXX
We'd like to thank New Member Marie Rogers for her cheque for £300.00. This Donation means we are now getting close to being 3/4rds of our way to our target
NOTE: This should not be confused with the 'name-a-rose' schemes (or scams) which are similar to the 'name-a-star' scams where an existing rose bush is named for you at a cost of £40-50. These roses are an existing variety and are only 'named' for your in THEIR ROSE GARDEN and NOT on any OFFICIAL RECORDS. Neither are they a NEW & UNIQUE ROSE VARIETY!
