St. Margaret's Hospice were delighted to host a celebration event recently to thank the Somerset gardeners that kindly opened their gardens, this summer to raise vital funds totalling £16,600 for the hospice.
Unlike nationwide open gardens schemes, all donations raised from the St. Margaret's Open Garden Season are used to support local patients and their families in Somerset and the Sherborne area of Dorset.
St. Margaret's Hospice is very keen to hear from anyone who would like to take part in 2019, be it a garden, allotment, orchard or farm, or as a garden volunteer. There are many other ways to support the scheme, including plant sales, serving refreshments at local shows, or a community scarecrow trail. We are also seeking local businesses who would like to advertise in our 2019 Open Garden Brochure or donate a prize to the Open Garden Raffle.
For more information and an informal chat, please contact Susan on 01935 709182 or email
