The National Garden Scheme have announced that in 2017 they raised a record £3.1million for charity. Crikey. 💛
Beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK, Carer’s Trust, Queens Nursing Institution, Parkinson’s UK, Perennial and MS society.
As someone who is opening her garden for the first time I feel proud to be part of this extraordinarily brilliant fund raiser.
By heck £3.1million that’s a lot of people looking at gardens, quaffing coffee and cake.
I hope any local readers will join me on August 12th. Those of you who are further afield, do try to visit at least one garden in your local area.
Look for the Yellow Book. D.
