Teddy bear’s picnic and afternoon tea on offer at Summer Garden Party
Pilgrims Hospices supporters can enjoy a teddy bear’s picnic and afternoon tea at the Summer Garden Party on Saturday 4 August 2018 in support of local hospice care.
Amongst the many wonderful stalls that Summer Fair visitors have enjoyed for years, at this year’s Summer Garden Party children will be able to adopt a cute cuddly toy from the new Adopt-a-Friend stall and then attend a special teddy bear’s picnic in the Ashford hospice’s wildlife garden. Surprise guests will pop in to visit and children can also take part in a fun treasure hunt.
Adult guests can enjoy an afternoon tea with optional bubbly in our beautiful Ashford hospice grounds.
Our knowledgeable gardeners will be on hand selling their many beautiful plants and cuttings; it’s the perfect opportunity to take a piece of the hospice home with you.
Victoria Friar, Community Fundraising Manager at Pilgrims Hospice Ashford
Victoria Friar, Community Fundraising Manager for Ashford, said: “This year we want everyone to enjoy our delightful hospice gardens, which are so carefully looked after by our amazing team of volunteer gardeners. Our knowledgeable gardeners will be on hand selling some of their many beautiful plants and cuttings; it’s the perfect opportunity to take a little piece of the hospice home with you.
“And of course we will have lots of stalls to browse and enjoy, including our famous book stall, pre-loved treasure, fashion accessories and our many popular games like the tombola.
“Each year Pilgrims needs to raise £11m through voluntary donations to continue providing compassionate care, free of charge, across east Kent, so events like this make a real difference to local people and families who are living with incurable illness. Come and show your support for Pilgrims by having a fun day out with family and friends.”
Pilgrims are delighted that Stagecoach has again offered its services to help out with a free park and ride, which will operate from the Mersham-Le-Hatch Business Village.
The Summer Garden Party will be open 12pm – 4pm on Saturday 4 August in the grounds of Pilgrims Hospice Ashford.
