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.
We are delighted that many of our gardens in England and Wales are now open. All visitors must pre-purchase tickets on our website for a timed slot at their garden of choice. All funds raised will go to the Help Support Our Nurses campaign. For full details and to see those gardens opening click below.
We know anecdotally that gardens, balconies, allotments, and public spaces have been more important than ever throughout the current COVID-19 pandemic but now we’d like to hear what you think. What did your garden or other outdoor space mean to you during lockdown?
“I love the National Garden Scheme which has been the most brilliant supporter of Queens Nurses like me. It was founded by the Queens Nursing Institute which makes me very proud. As we battle Coronavirus on the front line in the community, knowing we have their support is a real comfort.”
Liz Alderton, Queen’s Nurse
