Proud of Your Garden

Be proud of the difference that you can make. Share your garden, window-box, allotment or communal space with friends and family and you could help change someone’s life.

You can organise tea and cake party, a tasty BBQ or even a sunny afternoon stroll - the options are endless. 

The money you raise can make such a difference to people here in the UK and around the world. A whopping £88 could give someone in the UK all the Red Cross visits they need after a stay in hospital.

Tamsin Westhorpe is a director and gardener at her family garden, Stockton Bury, in
Herefordshire and a freelance garden
writer – and thinks everyone should be proud of their garden:
“I have been a professional gardener for over 20 years and strongly believe that gardens need to be shared, however small and unmanaged.”
“Me? I am planning a mini sports day in my garden for my son’s friends.”
Go on, share your garden, set up your event today and make a difference to people’s lives!
