A blooming wonderful result

A fantastic donation of more than £1000 has been given to Broxtowe Women’s Project (BWP) after three fund-raisers took part in the Beeston & Chilwell Garden Trail 2018.

The popular weekend involved more gardens being open than ever before this year, including three lovingly created and tended by two former and one current BWP Trustees.

As well as throwing her garden gate open, one of the women involved also served cream teas, which were extremely well-received.

Visitor numbers were boosted by the fact that the event had a grand opening by BBC Radio Nottingham’s gardening expert John Stirland, who was also on hand to answer gardeners’ questions.

One of the ADA members taking part welcomed almost 150 visitors to her garden, and the one making the teas was so busy she had no time to take photographs!

Following the event, a donation of £1,100 has been handed over to BWP.

Commenting, BWP Business and Fundraising Manager Sarah Dagley said: “This is an amazing amount and we are very grateful to everyone involved.

“We are sure the gardens will have brought a lot of pleasure to those who visited and at the same time they have helped our worthy cause.”
