After the very first Horatio’s Garden Spring Raffle raised over £20,000 last year, the online event will be making a triumphant return on Monday 14th March, with tickets available for purchase online until Monday 18th April.
Horatio’s Garden is a national charity creating and nurturing beautiful gardens in NHS spinal injury centres to support patients, their loved ones and NHS staff affected by spinal injury.
The event was established in the midst of lockdown last year after the charity felt inspired to do something that would not only bring a little joy to everyone as they spent time at home, but would also help to raise money to support people affected by life-changing injuries.
This year, Horatio’s Garden are hoping to make the Spring Raffle bigger and better than ever and we’re delighted to be one of the leading companies supporting the event.
With so many wonderful prizes to be won, including one we’ve donated, now is the time to give yourself the chance to win something special whilst giving something back to an incredible cause.
Tickets cost £5 and will be available online at www.horatiosgarden.org.uk/springraffle22
The raffle will be drawn on Tuesday 19th April, so you will have to wait until then to discover whether you’re one of the lucky winners.
We hope that you will join us in helping Horatio’s Garden to continue its vital work by purchasing your tickets this spring.
Each Horatio’s Garden is a lifeline for people adjusting to, or caring for someone with, a spinal cord injury. Throughout the pandemic, the charity’s horticultural havens became more vital than ever and since then the importance of the charity’s mission has come to be universally understood. Thousands, if not millions, of us came to find solace in green spaces in lockdown and thanks to the kindness of the public, Horatio’s Garden were able to keep bringing that same sense of calm to those who faced spending lockdown alone in NHS hospitals.
Six stunning gardens are now open in the South West, Scotland, Stoke Mandeville, the Midlands, London and most recently Wales. The capital appeal for the charity’s seventh project, Horatio’s Garden Northern Ireland has just been launched and an eighth garden for Sheffield is currently in the early phases of development.
“It’s a wonderful place to spend recovery,” shares former patient Ollie, adding “the garden is a lovely place to relax in and watch the wildlife pass by, as well as to sit and chat to other patients. It made my recovery a lot easier.”
Ollie’s sentiments are precisely why Horatio’s Garden need your help.
