Careys Secret Garden: National Garden Scheme Charity Event
Open Garden Charity Event!
Carey’s Secret Garden is excited to host its first Open Garden Charity Event to raise money for the many beneficiaries of the National Garden Scheme. All proceeds from tickets sales will go to the National Garden Scheme Charity.
The National Garden Scheme gives visitors unique access to over 3,500 exceptional private gardens in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, and The Channel Islands, and raises impressive amounts of money for some of the UK’s best-loved nursing and health charities through admissions, teas, and cake.
Thanks to the generosity of garden owners, volunteers, and visitors we have donated more than £63 million to our beneficiary charities, and in 2021 made donations of over £3 million. Founded in 1927 to support district nurses, we are now the most significant charitable funder of nursing in the UK and our beneficiaries include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK, and The Queen’s Nursing Institute.
The National Garden Scheme doesn’t just open beautiful gardens for charity – we are passionate about the physical and mental health benefits of gardens too. We fund projects which promote gardens and gardening as therapy, and in 2017, we launched our annual Gardens and Health Week to raise awareness of the topic. Our funding also supports the training of gardeners and offers respite to horticultural workers who have fallen on difficult times.
