Garden House Charity Auction…

Posted by editor on Sunday, 16 July 2017

Visit the garden Sunday 23 July for our fantastic fund-raising event – this year we are raising money for local charity, Circles Network, Saturday Club. The club is a project providing short breaks for adults of all ages with learning disabilities or difficulties. Entirely self-funding, it has been supporting people in the Lewes District for over 25 years and now is open to a wide range of members needing different levels of support.

As usual, the Garden House will be holding an amazing auction (starts 3pm), with all proceeds going to the charity.

See below for a list of the Auction Lots up for grabs! If you can’t make it on the day but would like to bid on something, email us your bid by midnight on Saturday – .

We will also have a variety of stalls selling plants, garden-related items and crafts, and will be serving food all afternoon so drop in for lunch or for tea and a slice of homemade cake.

 Opening Time: 11-6pm.

Entrance: £2.50 / Children FREE

Location: The Garden House, 5 Warleigh Road, Brighton BN1 4NT

Please come along and support this very worthwhile charity.
