We have become a permanent beneficiary of the National Garden Scheme (NGS), after three years as a guest charity.

The announcement was made at the launch of the NGS “Gardens To Visit 2016” at the Royal Festival Hall in London on March 17.

We became a guest charity of the NGS in 2013, and since that time over £622,000 has been raised (including matched funding from The Monument Trust) to help fund specialist Parkinson’s nurses.

Money raised through the support of the NGS will continue to provide vital care to some of the 127,000 people living with Parkinson’s in the UK.

Paul Jackson-Clark, Director of Fundraising at Parkinson’s UK said, “We are thrilled and honoured to be the first guest charity in the 89 year history of the National Gardens Scheme to become a permanent partner.”
