Garden at Christopher’s open for National Garden Scheme

  • 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
  • Christopher’s

This July, Christopher’s will be opening the garden for the National Garden Scheme for the first time!

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.

As our families will know, the garden has been specifically designed with the needs of the children we support in mind. From adapted play equipment and sensory trails to open areas and quiet corners to sit and reflect. In 2022, Shooting Star Children’s Hospices were delighted to welcome a beautiful addition to the garden courtesy of wealth-management company Brewin Dolphin. The flowers were donated and repurposed from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show silver-medal-winning Brewin Dolphin garden, which award-winning garden designer, Paul Hervey-Brookes designed with sustainability at its heart.

We would love for you to join us on July 15th, 10am-3pm to enjoy the garden at Christopher’s alongside members of the public, refreshments will be available.

Supported families go FREE to this event. If you would like to attend, please fill out the form by clicking the ‘RSVP’ link. Equally, we are happy for supported families to join us on the day without prior commitment, but please make yourself known to Geraldine Sheedy upon arrival, so you are not charged entry.

However, if you wish to support the National Garden Scheme, you can purchase a ticket on the day but please do not feel obliged to do this.
