Did you know that the National Garden Scheme donated £3 million pounds last year to charitable beneficiaries, this money was raised by the tireless efforts of individual garden owners generously opening their gardens for the public to enjoy. The garden entry fee and monies raised from the sale of refreshments all go towards the funds.
