Open Gardens is a community fundraising initiative which encourages Weston Hospicecare supporters to open up their gardens to raise money to support the care given to those in Weston-super-Mare, North Somerset and Sedgemoor with life-limiting illnesses.
Due to the favourable weather, it traditionally takes place in the summer months. Unfortunately, 2020 saw the entire programme postponed due to coronavirus restrictions but the hope is we can get back to it in 2021.
The initiative has played host in gardens across North Somerset raising thousands for the hospice. It’s also heard many a great story, seen some delicious homemade cake and an infinite amount of tea and coffee.
Using the wonders of digital and social media, Weston Hospicecare supporters can now join a dedicated Open Gardens page on Facebook where updates from people’s gardens across the service area are shared.
For those not on Facebook, photo updates are available on this webpage.
