Sil­ver cel­e­bra­tion for Dorothy’s open gar­den

Amateur Gardening - - Your Gardening News -

GAR­DEN­ING is a labour of love for 90-year-old Dorothy Had­well who, for the past 25 years, has taken part in Kid­der­min­ster Open Gar­dens.

The event in the Worces­ter­shire town is run by Kid­der­min­ster Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety and Dorothy has never missed a year. Her open gar­den has helped the town’s gar­dens and al­lot­ments raise over £70,000 for char­i­ties.

Last year Kid­der­min­ster Open Gar­dens raised £4,000 and or­gan­is­ers hope that this year’s event (held on 1 July) will beat that, with pro­ceeds to Acorns Chil­dren’s Hos­pice and the Alzheimer’s So­ci­ety.
