Phyllis Tuckwell’s Open Gardens Invite You In!

Garden gates are swinging open across Surrey and Hampshire this spring and summer, welcoming visitors to these beautiful green spaces to raise money for local Hospice Care charity Phyllis Tuckwell.

Phyllis Tuckwell’s Open Gardens is a wonderful annual event which sees local garden owners open up their gardens for visitors to wander around and enjoy. It raises vital funds to help Phyllis Tuckwell continue caring for patients and families who are living with an advanced or terminal illness, such as cancer.

Some gardens may have acres of picturesque countryside, while others are small cottage gardens full of pots bursting with blooms. If you love connecting with nature, or are maybe looking for some ideas to try out in your own garden, then this is perfect for you! There are 20 gardens across West Surrey and North-East Hampshire which are opening for the event, so you can choose to visit those closest to you, travel further afield, or maybe even plan to see them all!

Our Open Gardens event is a wonderful way to enjoy the beauty of these fabulous green spaces, which have been so carefully tended and nurtured,” said Samantha West, community fundraiser at Phyllis Tuckwell. “By paying a small entry fee to visit each garden, you’ll help to raise money to help fund our care, enabling us to support those living with an advanced or terminal illness, when they need us the most. Some garden owners will be selling refreshments and may also have plants for sale too, all to raise even more money for Hospice Care.

Phyllis Tuckwell provides supportive and end of life care, and every day it supports over 250 patients, relatives and carers, but as the NHS/Government usually only covers about 20% of its costs, it has to raise over £25,000 a day to do this.

Please help us

All our services are free, but this is only possible due to the generosity of our amazing community. The Government/NHS only provide 25% of our costs, so we need to raise over £25,000 every day to provide our vital services.

Please donate what you can to help keep hospice care available to all those in our community who need us.
