HOSPICE SUPPORT: Popular plant sale being hosted in Berkhamsted for first time

 Published on: 30th April 2023   |   By: Darius Morgan   |   Category: Uncategorized

A popular plant sale fundraiser that has raised more than £100,000 for St Francis Hospice is being held in Berkhamsted this year.

The Markyate Plant Sale started in 1997 and has become a well-established date in the calendar for discerning gardeners and keen amateurs looking for top-quality plants and a fun afternoon out.

This year, the event is taking place at the hospice at Spring Garden Lane, Berkhamsted, from 10am to 3pm on Saturday, May 20, in memory of hospice supporter Ian Bradley.

Kate Phipps-Wiltshire, hospice CEO, said: “This year, we honour Ian Bradley, who was the beating heart of the plant sale for more than 20 years. We are delighted to hold this sale in our hospice grounds.

“By 2030, more than 4,000 people will need to rely on us for hospice care. We know a hospice is a gift a community gives to itself, and what could be better in exchange than a beautiful selection of plants?”

The proceeds from the sale will contribute to the hospice providing free, specialist care for people affected by life-limiting illness throughout Herts and Bucks.
