Haddonstone has been commended for its ongoing commitment and support of the National Garden Scheme’s Open Garden Scheme.
We have been committed to opening our Show Gardens as part of the National Garden Scheme Open Garden Scheme for the past 10 years and have raised over £12,000 to date.
We were delighted when Geoff Sage, Assistant County Organiser, the National Garden Scheme, Northamptonshire visited our head office this week to present a commemorative certificate and trowel.
Geoff said: “The National Garden Scheme is very grateful for the continued support that Haddonstone has shown. I would personally like to extend my sincere thanks to Haddonstone for opening their beautiful Show Gardens as part of our scheme over the past 10 years”.
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England and Wales, and raises impressive amounts of money for nursing and health charities through admissions, teas and cake sales.
Founded in 1927 to support district nurses, the National Garden Scheme is now the most significant charitable funder of nursing in the UK and their beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK and The Queen’s Nursing Institute. So far, thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors, a total of £55 million has been donated to nursing and health charities.
Will Haxby, Director of Marketing and Ornamental Sales, Haddonstone said: “The National Garden Scheme is an exceptional organisation that is dedicated to supporting district nursing charities across the UK. Haddonstone has been delighted to support the annual Open Garden Scheme for the past 10 years and to contribute to this worthwhile cause. We look forward to supporting the National Garden Scheme for many more years to come. ”
The Haddonstone Show Gardens are open throughout the year, as well as part of the National Garden Scheme each summer.
