Erddig allotments in Thomas Fields are taking part in this year’s National Garden Scheme for charity.
They’ll open their doors to the public between 2pm and 5pm on Sunday, August 4 to raise money for charity. Admission will be £3 for adults and children go free.
Refreshments will be available and there’s wheelchair access so why not pop along and show them your support?
“About the National Garden Scheme” (reproduced with their kind permission)
“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.
Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers and visitors we have donated a total of £55 million to nursing and health charities, and made a record annual donation of £3.1 million in 2018. Founded in 1927 to support district nurses, we are now the most significant charitable funder of nursing in the UK and our beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK and The Queen’s Nursing Institute.
The National Garden Scheme doesn’t just open beautiful gardens for charity – we are passionate about the physical and mental health benefits of gardens too. We fund projects which promote gardens and gardening as therapy, and in 2017, we launched our annual Gardens and Health Week to raise awareness of the topic.”
