Sup­port our hard­work­ing nurses by tak­ing part in The Great Bri­tish Gar­den Party. From the 14 – 20 Septem­ber the Na­tional Gar­den Scheme (NGS) is ask­ing peo­ple across the UK to cel­e­brate their own gar­dens, and raise money for a good cause, by host­ing a gar­den party. From af­ter­noon tea par­ties (with or without bub­bles) to a plant and pro­duce sale in your front gar­den or al­lot­ment, guests will pre-book their tick­ets to join in the party and funds raised through do­na­tions and sales will go to the NGS’s Help Sup­port Our Nurses cam­paign.
