National Garden Scheme partnership and commitment to health and wellbeing recognised at Macmillan Cancer Support awards
The National Garden Scheme were in good company when we attended Macmillan Cancer Support’s Corporate Partnerships Awards Evening at Museum of Brands, London on Tuesday 8th October.
Designed to recognise and thank the huge contribution made by corporate partners in helping people living with cancer, over 60 people attended the awards evening hosted by Natasha Parker, Head of Corporate Partnerships.
The National Garden Scheme won the award for its Commitment to Health and Wellbeing and was also recognised for its outstanding 35 years of support for the charity.
“Being a charity ourselves, the National Garden Scheme was unique among the attendees for many reasons,” says Communications Manager Vicky Flynn. “Marking 35 years of support, and the amazing £17.2million raised by our garden owners, is an impressive milestone. And, recognition for our commitment to Health and Wellbeing gives a real boost to our ongoing Gardens and Health campaign that promotes the positive physical and mental health benefits of gardens.”
