English country gardens opened to raise funds for CWMT

26 Jun 2018

 

David and Victoria Wormsley are opening up their classic English country gardens to help raise funds for the Trust.

 

The two-acre gardens surrounding their home – a Regency gothic former rectory in East Woodhay, near Newbury, Berkshire – feature a large walled garden, Mediterranean pool garden, wildflower meadow and a fruit garden.

 

David and Victoria are opening up their gardens to the public under the National Garden Scheme (NGS) on Sunday July 1st and Monday July 2nd, between 2 and 5pm. The entrance fee of £5 (children are free) will be donated to the NGS nursing charities, whilst donations and money raised from the sale of teas will be given to CWMT.

 

Rachel Waller, Head of Fundraising at the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, said: “The gardens at the Old Rectory are absolutely stunning so anyone who visits is in for a real treat. We’re incredible grateful to David and Victoria, and it is fundraising events like these, which enable us to provide our free mental health training to schools, universities, GPs and in the workplace.”
