Christopher’s opening for the National Garden Scheme

  • 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
  • Christopher’s

This July, Christopher’s will be opening for the National Garden Scheme for a second year!

Originally set up in 1927 to support district nurses, the National Garden Scheme now raises millions of pounds for nursing and health charities each year. Including Hospice UK, who received a £450,000 donation in 2022.

The garden space at Christopher’s is particularly enjoyed by families, having been specifically designed with the needs of the children in mind. From adapted play equipment and sensory trails to open areas to sit and reflect. In 2022, Shooting Star Children’s Hospices were delighted to welcome a beautiful garden courtesy of wealth-management company Brewin Dolphin to their Guildford based hospice, Christopher’s. The garden was donated and repurposed from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show silver-medal winning Brewin Dolphin garden, that award-winning garden designer, Paul Hervey-Brookes designed with sustainability at its heart.

Join us on August 18th, 12pm-5pm to enjoy the garden at Christopher’s with refreshments available.

Adult admission: £5 
Children: FREE

You can book tickets on the National Garden Scheme website or pay at the gate on the day. Cash and card accepted. 100% of profits raised from admission will go to the National Garden Scheme.
