Call for gardeners to show their gardens off


How does your garden grow? Big or small, charity Papworth Trust hopes gardeners will be ‘open’ to summer fundraising bid

“How many kinds of sweet flowers grow in an English country garden?” A line from an old folk song, but also a question people across the region just may find the answer to this summer.

Charity Papworth Trust is looking for people in the community to open their gardens in aid of its work supporting disabled people. Heart’s ease and phlox, meadowsweet and lady smocks, lupin or tall hollyhocks, to echo the words of the song. However your garden grows, the Trust would like to hear from you.

Papworth Trust Community Fundraiser Andrea Chupacova said: “We are looking for enthusiastic gardeners who are willing to open their gardens this summer and help us to raise vital funds. It’s a great way to celebrate the beauty of English country gardens – whether big or small – and support our work with disabled people and their families at the same time.”

If you would like to open your garden on behalf of Papworth Trust any time between May and the end of August 2014, then contact the Papworth Fundraising Team on 01480 357206. The team will be able to help you with marketing, publicity and ideas to raise funds such as raffles and teas.
