Several houses in the area open their gardens to raise money for charitable causes. Beneficiaries include local hospitals, care homes, family support groups and churches as well as the National Garden Scheme (NGS), who collect for various charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie, Hospice UK, Carers Trust and other nursing and caring charities.

If any garden owners would like to open theirs for charity the NGS is the place to start. The East Sussex organiser is Irene Eltringham-Willson. Please contact her at
