OPEN GARDENS

white cliffs guide

Gardens have always been places of great beauty, and even thought of as Paradise itself. Gardens which open for the National Gardens Scheme can offer visitors a little slice of Paradise, and are especially lovely over Easter in early spring. The NGS has a rare and simple fundraising and grant-making model. Funds are raised annually by visitors paying to attend open gardens and to enjoy home-made teas or buying plants. The totals raised dictate the amounts that are donated annually within a twelve month period.

April onwards

FUNDRAISING £1 MILLION

Our Daughter, Kelly, is only 16yrs old. Up to October 2015 she was fit and well and enjoying a happy and fulfilling life. In October 2015 she was diagnosed with Cancer. Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is an aggressive tumor that typically begins in the abdomen or pelvis. Considered a pediatric cancer, this rare type of soft tissue sarcoma is diagnosed in about 20 adolescents in the United States each year.She's been well cared for by The Royal Marsden, Sutton UK with 9 rounds of chemotherapy which has responded well, but because there are tumours close to her Liver they're not prepared to carry out any Surgery. If Surgery can be carried out and it's in the USA we are not covered by their insurance system so we'll have to find funding.

If the Surgery is not possible then any money raised will go to DSRCT research at The Royal Marsden UK.
