Lower Hope Gardens opens to the public to fundraise for Breast Cancer Haven

Clive and Sylvia Richards, owners of Lower Hope Gardens, will be opening the beautiful 5-acre grounds to the public on 11 August to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Haven, Hereford.

Breast Cancer Haven is a national charity that supports women throughout or after their breast cancer treatment. When breast cancer tries to rob a woman of her individuality, confidence or strength, Breast Cancer Haven provides a tailored package of emotional, physical and practical support that helps her hold on to them.

Each programme of personalised support costs Breast Cancer Haven £1,000 and their funding comes entirely from community and corporate support.

Rachael Manacchini-Godfrey, Community Fundraising and Events Officer at Breast Cancer Haven said, “We are honoured to be given this opportunity to fundraise in such beautiful surroundings. Visitors will enjoy manicured lawns, extensive herbaceous borders, rose gardens and walks. There are many stunning water features throughout and gloriously diverse spaces including a Mediterranean garden, the glasshouse garden and the Japanese garden. After all that, visitors can sample the wonderful home-made cakes lovingly baked by our volunteers and enjoy and raffle and plant stall.”

The gates open at 2.00pm and close at 5.00pm. Entry is £6 for adults and £1 for children. If you would like further details or would like to donate a cake or plant for sale please contact Rachael on 01432 361055 or email: rachael.manacchini-godfrey@breastcancerhaven.org.uk.
