On Sunday 15 July, the public are invited to visit Sue Ryder Nettlebed Hospice for their Open Garden. Taking place 11.30am to 3pm, it’s an opportunity to explore the hospice’s picturesque grounds. With £1 entry it’s a great day out with musical acts, a plant and china sale, children’s games and refreshments on offer.
As part of the event, renowned local upcycling specialist and interior designer Lynne Lambourne will be running an exclusive workshop. Lynne will be sharing her secrets to transforming furniture and guests will be given a piece of furniture from the Sanctuary to work on, helping the charity to complete the transformation of this special part of the hospice. Paint will be provided; we just ask that you provide a paintbrush. At £30, this workshop is a fraction of the usual cost and the perfect opportunity to learn the tricks of the trade. Lynne, who regularly attends the Nettlebed sale and is passionate supporter of Sue Ryder is providing her time completely free of charge and donating all workshop fees to the charity.
Becca Braithwaite, Head of Hospice Fundraising, comments: “We’re inviting you to celebrate the warmer weather with family and friends at what promises to be a fantastic event. We are excited to welcome Lynne Lambourne and can’t wait to see what the upcycled furniture looks like – the finished products will be a great addition to our hospice sanctuary. We hope to see you on the 15 July for a day of fun.”
