Join other supporters opening their gardens to the public this summer in exchange for a donation to the children’s charity

Homeowners in Kent are doing their bit to raise funds for chYps Children’s Hospice at Home by sharing their ‘Secret Gardens’ with others.

Supporters are opening their gardens to the public this summer or are holding private gatherings with friends in exchange for a donation to the charity.

Money raised will help chYps to care for babies, children and young people in need of hospice care in the comfort and security of their own homes.

Rachel Holweger, Director of Fundraising at chYps said: “The more gardens that open, the more money we can raise. Taking part in Secret Gardens can be as simple as inviting friends over for some tea and cake and asking for a small entry fee. We really hope the kind people of Kent will help support this initiative in aid of such a worthwhile cause.”

In a special twist, secret celebrities will also be attending some of the events taking place throughout the county.

● To find out what gardens are opening near you, visit www.chyps.org or contact Area Fundraiser phil.dickman@chyps.org 01322 221315.
