The Dukeries Singers

“Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right,” to quote Oprah Winfrey. We have got through the last year, let’s hope the next one is a bit kinder. Look for the snowdrops. Their courage in shoving their heads above the wall (soil in this case!) has to be an inspiration to us all. Our pots of Pansies are doing their very best to cheer the soul.

National Garden Scheme donations to key nursing and health charities provide critical support in a year of crisis

National Gardens Scheme

Despite the challenges created by the pandemic and the closure of all its gardens during both lockdowns, the National Garden Scheme has announced donations totalling £2,884,710. The lion’s share – £2,587,000* – goes to the nursing and health beneficiary charities without which the NHS would have struggled during the coronavirus crisis.
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique, affordable 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. We are lucky to have numerous gardens in the Retford area taking part every year.
National Garden Scheme Chief Executive, George Plumptre said: “Following a year full of challenges and uncertainty we are delighted to be able to announce a second tranche of funding to support our beneficiaries bringing the total we’ve donated in 2020 to almost £3 million.”
The National Garden Scheme doesn’t just open beautiful gardens for charity – they are passionate about the physical and mental health benefits of gardens too. They fund projects which promote gardens and gardening as therapy, and in 2017, they launched their annual Gardens and Health Week to raise awareness of the topic.
To find your perfect garden, visit www.ngs.org.uk, download the National Garden Scheme app or purchase the National Garden Scheme’s Garden Visitor’s Handbook.
In 2021 all garden visits are by pre-booked ticket and subject to government restrictions in relation to the coronavirus pandemic. We look forward to telling you about open gardens in Retford Life.
