West Malvern gardens to open their gates to celebrate town charity's 30th anniversary

Craig Gibbons 14th Jul, 2017

ELEVEN private gardens in West Malvern will open their gates this weekend to celebrate the 30th anniversary of a town charity which provides clubs and activities for children and young people with disabilities.

The picturesque gardens, many of which have views of the famous hills, will be open between 2pm and 6pm this Saturday and Sunday with all money raised going to Malvern Special Families.

Malvern Special Families chairperson Helen Attree is encouraging the local community to come along and support the event.

“We are proud to be celebrating 30 years of supporting local families, providing safe and engaging social opportunities for children and young people with disabilities,” she said.

“We would like to invite everyone in the local community to help celebrate our 30th year by coming along to this fantastic open gardens fundraiser.”

As the event is expected to be popular, visitors are requested they park at the West of England Quarry car park where they can collect a free map.

At the first garden, guests are urged to buy a £5 passport which provides access to all gardens on both days.

Ruth Pole, organiser of the West Malvern Open Gardens charity event, was one of the first parents to be supported by Malvern Special Families.

“Malvern Special Families made a massive difference to our family life when our son was young and we are glad to have this opportunity to support other families in similar circumstances,” she added.
