Open your garden this summer for Macmillan Cancer Support

Besi Besemar February 18, 2018

Organisers of the Macmillan Coastal Garden Trail are seeking more gardens to be added to their 2018 garden trail.

All money raised will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support and the Horizon Centre, a partnership between the Sussex Cancer Fund, Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust and Macmillan Cancer Support.

The generous people of Sussex raised £3.7m to help fund the building of the Macmillan Horizon Centre, but more is still needed. Running costs of the centre are covered by Macmillan Cancer Support, with services provided by a team of skilled local volunteers.

Macmillan is funded solely by donations and the running costs of the centre are over £650,000 per annum. All monies raised from this garden trail will support Macmillan in its operation of the centre.

Once again this year, broadcaster and gardener Christine Walkden is Patron of the trail which takes place over the weekend of July 28-29.

Entry to each garden is £2 or £6 for a daily ticket.

For more information call Geoff on 01323 899 296.
