Why hosting a Great British Garden Party means so much

Every penny raised through our annual fundraiser, the ‘Great British Garden Party’ makes a difference to the vital nursing and health charities we support. As the single largest funder of Marie Curie’s work, the longest standing partner of Macmillan Cancer Support and a key funder for Hospice UK, Carers Trust, Parkinson’s UK and The Queen’s Nursing Institute our consistent and generous funding is of significant importance to the continuing operations of these charities.
