Stanwick Community Garden Growing for Cransley

Stanwick Community Garden is a small, green oasis developed by a group of individuals with varying levels of horticultural knowledge and experience, who during the lockdown, turned their gardening skills into a fundraiser for Cransley Hospice, raising a fantastic £200.

The self-funding community garden usually holds an annual Open Day and Plant Sale to raise funds to improve the garden and access for all, but with Covid-19 they decided to hold a plant sale to raise money for Cransley Hospice, taking the seedlings home to nurture them in their gardens during the lockdown.

This proved very popular with the members of the group who gave generously and raised an amazing £200 for Cransley Hospice, even more than they had raised the previous year, with cakes and savouries!

The group continues to look after the gardens, socially distanced of course, and look forward to welcoming visitors again and raising even more money at next year’s Open Day.
