Join me in celebration of the National Garden Scheme’s Great British Garden Party
Gardens, allotments and balconies became havens for millions of people during the long weeks of lockdown. They have provided us with relief from stress, anxiety and isolation and shown us the importance of a breath of fresh air. At the same time, the nursing charities supported by the National Garden Scheme, like Marie Curie and the Queen’s Nursing Institute, have been working heroically on the front line of the pandemic.
So to celebrate your gardens and to give much needed support to these nurses, the National Garden Scheme is launching The Great British Garden Party. During the week of 14th – 20th September, the charity is inviting everyone to host an event in their garden. It’s a wonderful opportunity to share your own outdoor space – whatever it’s like – to remind yourself what a huge comfort it has been in recent months and to share those memories with friends, family and neighbours. Every penny will help, big or small.
I’ll be hosting my own tea party with my family and friends. Make cakes, have fun and help us to support these wonderful nursing charities.
