David Gower sits to make a stand at Old Trafford

It was the morning of 8 September 2013, a few hours before the start of the second England versus Australia one day international cricket match. En route to his commentary box, David Gower - one of WLT's Patrons - stopped to pose for the camera. David is sitting in one of five deckchairs beautifully designed for WLT by Winchester School of Art textile students. Every deckchair sold from the Sit to Make a Stand collection saves half an acre of rainforest.
