NGS Beneficiary Charities Thank You
Since 1927, we have raised and distributed more than £35 million to support these charities. We keep overheads low, so more than 80p in every £1 of your donation goes straight to our charities.
The NGS is Macmillan Cancer Support's biggest single donor, donating over £13 million and funding 130 Macmillan services, such as nursing posts, financial advice, and counselling, helping thousands of people affected by cancer. Similarly, the NGS is the biggest single donor to Marie Curie Cancer Care. We have given more than £5 million in 15 years. The money funds the Marie Curie Nursing Service, providing free high quality nursing care giving people with terminal illness the choice of dying at home, supported by their families.
Over 2 million UK carers of working age (that’s 66 per cent) combine work and caring. Our donation allows Crossroads to support working carers. In 2008 the NGS assisted Help the Hospices with funding towards training for nurses and hospice staff, so they can give the best possible care. The NGS keeps up its tradition of funding nursing care through The Queen’s Nursing Institute. With our support, Perennial – Gardeners’ Royal Benevolent Society, helps people from the gardening trades who are in need, and now, also supports The Royal Fund for Gardeners’ Children, a long established NGS beneficiary, with whom they merged in 2010. Our donation to The National Trust helps train the heritage gardeners of the future.
All of this has been made possible by you, visiting NGS gardens. A very big THANK YOU for all your support!
