Open Your Garden For St Helena Hospice

If you’ve been making use of your green fingers over the last year, why not show off your garden in support of your local hospice?

St Helena Hospice is looking for people to share the fruits of their labour and open their gardens this to raise funds to help local people facing dying, death and bereavement in north Essex.

It’s free and easy to get involved:

  • Pick your own day and time
  • Open your garden for a donation on the gate
  • Invite just your family, friends or neighbours, or open up to your whole community
  • Add special fundraising extras – cakes, plants, crafts… 

Joanne Clarke, fundraiser at St Helena Hospice, said: “Whether you have grand grounds or pocket gardens; beautiful borders or stunning tubs, we’d love you to open your garden for St Helena Hospice.

“All the money raised from open gardens will go towards providing vital care and support to patients and families, and giving them hope that they can be cared for with compassion and dignity, where they want to be, whether that’s at home, or at The Hospice.

“If you’re worried about Covid-19, we are here to help and support you with your event. With open gardens being outdoor events, these should be able to go ahead from May, as long as you adhere to the guidelines; or you could wait until later in the summer, and hopefully hold your event restriction free!”

St Helena Hospice’s Open Gardens is kindly sponsored by Stowe Family Law.
