Open Your Garden For Children's Hospice


8:18am 22nd April 2014

If you've got a lovely open garden that's bursting with colour and character, Dorset's Children's Hospice wants to hear from you.

Julia's House is looking for vibrant places to host events, fundraisers and tea parties.

The charity says gardens can be any size, from a tiny terrace and single garden to whole village space or acre.

Pimperne residents, near Blandford, hosted a hugely successful village garden event in support of the Julia's House fundraiser last year (2013).

Community fundraiser Jennie Gardener says it's not all about huge massive stately gardens;

"Gardens can be any size or style, from cottage garden to urban retreats. Unusual designs, quirky features or interesting planting are always very popular."

"As well as charging a small entrance fee, many gardeners also serve refreshments or sell raffle tickets or plants. We are running our Julia's House Time for Tea campaign throughout the summer, so some people might consider hosting a tea part in their garden too."

If your garden is bursting with pretty flowers and you fancy hosting members of the public contact Jennie on 01202 644220 or email jennie.gardner@juliashouse.org
