Local gardeners to raise money for cancer charities

Gary Hart April 4, 2017

The 6th annual Macmillan Coastal Garden Trail will take place this year on July 29 and 30th.

Award winning Seaford gardener, Geoff Stonebanks’s Driftwood Fundraising Group, has raised over £40,000 for the new Macmillan Horizon Centre in Brighton, through the trail and other events in his own garden.

The Macmillan Horizon Centre is a partnership between Macmillan Cancer Support, the Sussex Cancer Fund and Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust. Opened in November 2016, the centre was designed with input from people affected by cancer to make it the best place to offer the support and services that people in Sussex need. The centre offers all round support from a team of specialists in a calm, friendly and welcoming environment.

Do you know anyone who might like to open their garden for Macmillan this year?
