Martin McMillan OBE, Chair of the National Gardens Scheme, said:
“It is a privilege to have Her Royal Highness visit one of the beautiful gardens in our scheme. Thousands of people visit our gardens every year, and it must be one of the most enjoyable ways of raising money and supporting those who need our help.”
Founded in 1927, the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) has donated more than £45 million to charity. Over £3 million has already been raised by the National Gardens Scheme for Carers Trust, and their support has increased to £400,000 in 2015/16.
Gail Scott Spicer, Chief Executive of Carers Trust, who spoke at the event, said:
“NGS is one of our longest standing supporters and we are extremely grateful for the tremendous difference their support allows us to make to carers lives”.
There is still time to visit a garden, and show your support for Carers Trust.
