High Moss in Keswick, one of Britain’s best kept secret gardens, will host an Open Gardens event to support the British Red Cross to help people in crisis.
The event will take place on Sunday 2nd June from 2.30-5.00 pm at Portinscale, Keswick, CA12 5TX.
High Moss consists of 4.5 acres of terraced gardens, lawns and paddocks boasting magnificent views of the Cumbrian fells.
Visitors can see fir trees, rhododendrons and strikingly stunning azaleas. A former tennis court is now a vegetable patch. There are also herbaceous borders and a Lakeland arts and crafts garden.
British Red Cross senior community fundraiser in Cumbria, Kerry Threadgill, said: “It doesn’t matter if it’s a flood, a first aid emergency or loneliness – when crisis strikes, whatever the scale, there is always an impact on individuals.
“The Red Cross connects people’s kindness with people in crisis, by helping them to raise money, volunteer or campaign for issues that matter.
“Even small acts of kindness can be powerful and we’d love people to get involved by signing up to shake a fundraising bucket, holding an office cake sale or attending a fantastic event like this one at High Moss.
Tickets cost £5 and will be available on the day. There will be a plant stall and tea, coffee and homemade cakes will also be available. Dogs must be kept on leads.
Further directions: Off the A66, west of Keswick. Take the junction marked ‘Portinscale Newlands Valley’. Go over the bridge and almost immediately turn right into the private road.
