THIS WEEKEND! National Garden Scheme

This bank holiday, the National Garden Scheme celebrates their 90th anniversary.

Since 1927 they’ve donated over £50 million to charity by opening gardens and raising money from entry fees, tea and cake. In 5 years they’ve donated a staggering £722,000 to Parkinson’s UK, a charity close to our hearts and one that is incredibly proud to be a beneficiary of the National Garden Scheme.

Here’s 4 easy ways to get involved in their celebrations this weekend:

1. Visit a garden Over 370, including original 1927 gardens, are open this bank holiday. Find your nearest at ngs.org.uk
