ST MICHAEL’S HOSPICE

Open Gardens 2019:

 A varied array of venues makes up the St Michael’s Hospice Open Gardens programme for 2019.

The Hospice’s free-entry Plant Fair kicks off the season on 3rd – 4th May in Bartestree.

The final Open Gardens will be on 18th September with A Day of Gardens, Delicious Lunch and Poetry, featuring a trip around three spectacular Herefordshire gardens.

Between those dates there are a host of attractions ranging from community open gardens in Weobley, Kimbolton and the Aylestone Hill area of Hereford, to the beautiful Gatley Park on the edge of Mortimer Forest between Leominster and Ludlow, and popular wedding, event and holiday venue Brinsop Court, plus many others.

Last year, a record-breaking £45,000 was raised throughout the Open Gardens season meaning that over the years, Open Gardens have helped collect over £125,000 for St Michael’s.

For a full list of gardens, pick up a copy of our Open Gardens brochure from any one of our retail shops, at the Hospice in Bartestree, or by calling our Community Fundraising team on 01432 851 000. They are also available at www.st-michaels-hospice.org.uk

 Playing the Hospice Lottery:

 These days, £1 can’t buy you much.

A coffee, weekend newspaper, and even a bag of chips will set you back more.

But one thing it will secure you is a weekly entry into the St Michael’s Hospice Lottery draw.

We have a first prize of £1,000, and 23 other cash prizes every week.

So, to make Fridays feel grand, fill out an application form at st-michaels-hospice.org.uk or call 01432 851 000.
