Get green fingered for your local hospice!

News and Blog

Whether you’re a seasoned gardener, or just discovering the joys of gardening, there are plenty of ways for you to be a blooming hero for your local hospice this Spring.

We’ve put together some of our favourite suggestions; from garden parties to plant and produce sales. So grab your trowels, dust off your gardening gloves and help make a difference to more people in your local community when they need us most.

Open your garden gates to the local community to showcase the stunning landscape on your back door step in return for a donation. Boost your fundraising further by offering refreshments and donating the profit!

Organise a plant or produce sale featuring a variety of flowers, herbs, vegetables, and succulents. You could host a sale from your garden, at local markets, community centres, or even online.

Invite your family and friends to a garden party and ask for a donation to attend. Go wild with party games, a bake sale, a raffle or scavenger hunt to keep everyone entertained (and supercharge your fundraising)!

Challenge your loved ones to a growing competition. It could be the tallest sunflower, biggest marrow, or who can keep their cactus alive the longest. Entry donations can be split between the winner and our hospice.

Got a special skill that you could teach? Why not lead a workshop showcasing your talents to your less green-fingered friends – it could be anything from floristry, to your knowledge on growing through the seasons.

Put together seedling starter kits with everything needed to grow a specific plant, such as herbs or flowers. These kits can be sold at events or online, and they make excellent gifts for gardeners of all levels.
