Stokesley gardeners throw open gates to raise hospice funds

On Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July the community of Stokesley came together and opened their gardens to raise money for Teesside Hospice. The sunshine came out and so did the public to help raise in excess of £11,000!

Over 1,000 people came along to enjoy the beautiful gardens on show and to share gardening advice, tips and experiences with the gardeners. The glorious weather made the landscapes even more striking and certainly added to the enjoyment of the weekend.

The gardeners involved also helped to raise additional funds through the sale of refreshments, plants and homemade cakes. Visitors were extremely generous with numerous donations given in aid of their local Hospice.

Kim Bradley, Community Fundraiser said, ‘It was fantastic to see so many people supporting Teesside Hospice by visiting the beautiful gardens of Stokesley. We are thrilled to have raised such a huge amount of money – the most this event has raised to date! I would like to thank the gardeners, helpers and Volunteer Open Garden Coordinator Julia Haigh on behalf of the Hospice for all her hard work – we couldn’t have done it without you”

Stokesley Open Gardens is a bi-ennial event next taking place in Summer 2019. If you would like to open your garden please get in touch or if you would like to raise funds another way on behalf of Teesside Hospice, please call 01642 811145 or email fundraising@teessidehospice.co.uk.
