The Garden Day on Wednesday June 13th 2012 was very successful attracting over 80 visitors who came to enjoy the garden , stalls and at long last, a dry day in support of ASCT working to change young lives in the Philippines.
The garden was looking very colourful with many flowers and shrubs looking good and as the pictures show, ornamental features as well, with stalls offering plants, a tombola, raffles , a children’s play area and of course lots of cakes, strawberries and teas.
A combination of bright yellow day lilies, clematis, Rhododendron, Livingston daises, campanula, lupins roses and many more provided a range of colour filling the varied flower borders and beds.
The sealed bid auction of a watercolour of Windsor Castle by local artist David Buckingham helped to raise funds and proved a popular attraction. Many folks come each year meeting friends they don’t see very often and chat and relax and support the charity.
Below, the photo blog shows aspects of the garden, visitors and friends enjoying the stalls and delicious teas and some of Trustees of ASCT together with Myself and Margaret hosting the event at our home.
We would like to express our deep appreciation of every one who helped to make the day possible through much practical help in setting up, and helping in so many different ways showing a real community spirit.
ASCT has been caring for and educating vulnerable young people in the Philippines for around 38 years now and has changed hundreds of lives for the better in that time currently touching the lives of over 300 young people sponsored in their own homes, living in our residential home or being educated at our school, Cashew Tree school which has recently been linked to Heather Ridge School with exchanges of school folders.
