Gardens net £2,000

Sudbury Open Gardens raised nearly £2,000 for St Nicholas Hospice Care.

The event, which was held at the end of June, saw 18 gardens in the town opened to visitors and raised a total of £1,988.

Hospice community fundraiser Georgina Carr said: “We were very lucky with the weather, which encouraged people out and about to view the beautiful gardens on show.

“The funds raised will help to support people facing life-shortening conditions and their families.”

Organiser of the event Lady Florence Ousley said she would like to thank all those who helped the day run smoothly and everyone who opened their gardens.
