I am delighted to announce the return of St Margaret’s Hospice Care’s Glorious Somerset Gardens, which will see more than a dozen stunning gardens opening to visitors across the summer. The campaign kicks off with gardens opening from Monday 17th May and runs until the end of July 2021. Our green-fingered supporters have taken lockdown in their stride and have spent months getting their gardens ready and Covid secure for the summer.
Here at St. Margaret’s Hospice we know how important our gardens are to the health and wellbeing of our patients and their families, providing places of relaxation as well as reflection. For years, our loyal gardeners have been opening their gardens to raise funds for us and this year is no different. Our supporters have also stood by us in the face of Covid-19 so this year we wanted to give something back by offering more than a dozen amazing gardens for the community to visit, including walled gardens, steep woodlands, and many stunning gardens with beautiful views. There is something to interest everyone and every donation made will help us continue to provide compassionate care to patients and their families, when it matters most.
I am hoping you will be able to kindly help us by promoting the campaign to your members, or even popping along to visit the gardens we have on offer. I have attached a poster for reference. Full details of locations, opening dates and admission prices can be found in the Glorious Somerset Gardens 2021 brochure, available from St. Margaret’s Hospice shops, selected local garden centres or via the hospice’s website: https://www.st-margarets-hospice.org.uk/glorious-gardens.
