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:
2. Look out for Parkinson’s UK cyclists Show support on social media for some brave Parkinson’s UK staff cycling to garden openings this weekend.
3. Volunteer with Parkinson’s UK Become a National Garden Scheme Ambassador – an easy volunteer role where you’ll help at a garden opening.
4. Enter the photography competition The National Garden Scheme has partnered with BBC Gardeners’ World Magazine for a competition. Prizes include a private tour of Mary Berry’s garden! Find out more at parkinsons.org.uk/jobs/16-may-2017/national-garden-scheme-ambassador
