Hospiscare looks for new gardens to join 2020 open gardens scheme


Hospiscare, the Devon adult hospice charity, is celebrating a record breaking gardens open programme in 2019 by raising £28,000. The programme started 15 years ago with four gardens raising around £1,500 and now the charity opens over 30 gardens annually. 

The charity has new gardens opening every year and is asking anybody who wants to open their garden for 2020 to contact them. 

The gardens range from small, terraced gardens to sprawling acres in the countryside. Hospiscare is the local hospice charity for Exeter, Mid and East Devon. Supporters open their gardens to raise vital money for Hospiscare’s services. 

Hospiscare needs to raise 80per cent of its funding from the community. The funding enables patients to be cared for at home by community nurses, who are looking after over 750 patients at any one time. 

It is the charity’s aim to help local people with a terminal illness make the most of the time they have.
