2017 Growing today for all our tomorrows


Our beneficiaries receiving donated funds

On a fine late summers afternoon, Hellens Garden Festival team were delighted to visit St Michael’s Hospice to hand over funds raised from the Festival.

We raised £7,500 for the Hospice and £2,500 for Back to the Wild project and with some of our supporters and sponsors, we enjoyed a tour of the newly refurbished hospice, and new building and gardens and landscape. It was wonderful to see and experience where our funds are most used. With Back to the Wild on site, children and families from present and past hospice patients, were able to build dens and play woodland games in the grounds.

On Friday 14th October, we were visited by the BBC Countryfile team who filmed our traditional Perry Making. We had an amazing day with Matt Baker and Anita Rani. The result was that Hellens were a part of a lovely broadcast on the 30th October showing Herefordshire at its very best (and of course the Perry!)
