Trinity has broken its record for takings on the National Gardens Scheme open day.
At the opening on 31 July, over £2,000 was raised for the first time from visitors to Trinity’s gardens under the National Gardens Scheme.
The college has participated in the NGS since the early 1990s, opening the gardens to the public twice a year, once in the spring and once in the summer (for the NGS openings, the President’s and Fellows’ gardens, not accessible when the grounds are open normally, are also on show). Proceeds from entrance tickets benefit the major charities supported by the NGS, whilst the receipts from sales of teas are donated to local charities. In total, nearly £45,000 has been raised to date.
The commitment of the gardeners to supporting the scheme and their hard work to make the gardens look as good as possible for the visitors is a tremendous credit to them.
