‘The Great British Garden Party’

Host your own socially distanced garden party this September and join The Great British Garden Party to raise funds for vital nursing charities. Whether you choose to host an afternoon tea party, prosecco by candlelight or a plant sale in your front garden, everyone can join in and help raise funds through donations and sales.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to share your own outdoor space – whatever it’s like – to remind yourself what a huge comfort it has been in recent months and to share those memories with friends, family and neighbours. Every penny will help, big or small. I’ll be hosting my own tea party with my family and friends. Make cakes, have fun and help us to support these wonderful nursing charities.” Mary Berry

Joining The Great British Garden Party this September couldn’t be simpler, just sign up using this link, and we’ll send you a digital fundraising pack including invitations and posters as well as menu and party ideas, and information on how to ensure your party is following current government guidelines.
