Media Release: Scottish gardeners support Worldwide Cancer Research


THE St Andrews charity, Worldwide Cancer Research, has benefited from the generosity of gardeners who took part in this year’s Scotland’s Gardens Growing and Giving Campaign.

Over May and June, 12 privately owned gardens across Angus and Fife opened their gardens to the public, giving visitors an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful sights and scents.

With many different gardens to choose from, visitors were able to find ideas and inspiration for their own gardening or simply relaxed and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings and the hard work of others. Visitors were also able to take advantage of the plant sales offered by some of the garden owners, while others enjoyed a relaxing cup of tea surrounded by the beauty of nature.

Geraldine Long, Donor Development manager at the charity, thanked Scotland’s Gardens and those owners who took part in the trail. “Over the past four years, the members of Scotland’s Gardens in Fife have donated almost £25,000 to Worldwide Cancer Research. We are delighted that garden owners in Angus wish to join with their colleagues in Fife to continue that support.”

Terrill Dobson, who is the National Organiser for Scotland’s Gardens, as well as one of the owners who participated in this year’s trail, says: “Members of Scotland’s Gardens in Angus are proud to join with our friends in Fife to support Worldwide Cancer Research. We were impressed to learn that the charity has funded a large number of cancer research projects in Dundee during the past 20 years.”
