Actor and Olympic expert Robert Gray is paying his own personal tribute to the Equestrian games at the Olympics in a unique way and helping raise money for Alzheimer's Society.
Robert, whose home is also a B & B in the heart of London's Greenwich, a host borough for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, has installed a life-size topiary horse, complete with rider, in the front garden.
Robert is encouraging visitors to Greenwich to come and have a photograph taken with the life-size topiary horse in return for donations to Alzheimer's Society.
Benson, named after Olympic course Designer Sue Benson, was officially unveiled by the newly sworn-in The Worshipful The Mayor of Greenwich, Councillor David Grant. Visitors to Greenwich - 75,000 people per day are expected - will be able to be photographed with Benson in return for a small donation to the Mayor's Charity, Alzheimer's Society.
