This Father’s Day, Penny Brohn UK will be opening up its gardens as part of the National Garden Scheme.

The four-acre gardens at our National Centre near Bristol, will be open from 10am to 4pm on Sunday 16 June. Visitors can bring a picnic and enjoy the beautiful gardens throughout the day. Light refreshments will also be available to purchase. Entertainment will include music from the Penny Brohn Community Choir and the chance to try Nordic Walking. Entrance costs £4 per adult with free entry for children.

Sophie Thomas, Community Fundraising Officer, said: “Our amazing team of volunteer gardeners work so hard throughout the year to keep the gardens looking beautiful. We are extremely grateful to them and are proud to showcase their work as part of the National Garden Scheme. The gardens at the National Centre are a big part of what we do at Penny Brohn UK; giving anyone affected by cancer the chance to explore nature and find a quiet place to relax.”

The charity recently launched an interactive garden map, allowing users to explore the gardens and follow a therapeutic journey around the grounds whilst discovering information about the history of the gardens and the plants and wildlife that live there.
