Metallica - Metallica Donate To Fan's Garden Design Project

Rockers Metallica have made a green-fingered fan's dreams come true by handing out funds to help him develop his garden design for a prestigious British horticultural competition.

Arek Luc's garden design, inspired by the band's track I Disappear, was accepted to go on display at the Royal Horticultural Society's annual flower show at Hampton Court in England in July (13), but the project was in jeopardy due to lack of funding.

The rockers were alerted to Luc's plight by their manager Peter's wife, former British politician Louise Mensch, who read about the design in a local publication, and the stars decided to dip into their own pockets to ensure the project went ahead as planned.

Luc tells Britain's The Times newspaper, "Louise e-mailed me and asked how much I still needed. I couldn't believe it when they sent me several thousand pounds."

Mensch adds, "The whole band was tickled pink (delighted) by Arek's garden. The band does a colossal amount of work for charity but it's not usually associated with gardens."
