Mental Health Awareness Week runs from 15th – 21st May this year, on a theme of ‘Anxiety.

The fundraising week starts with a Great Garden Party at Chestnut Nursery on Saturday 13th May from 10.30 a.m. – 2.30 p.m.  Come along and join us for hot and cold drinks, cakes, live music, a raffle and, of course, lots of plants!

During the week we are grateful to Rick Stein at Sandbanks for sponsoring a Coffee Morning.  For just £5 per person for tea/coffee and cake, all the while enjoying the amazing views over the bay.

Friday 19th May is ‘The Power of Flowers’ day whereby you can choose to wear a flower in your hair, find an item of clothing with flowers on it or go all out head to toe in fancy dress and make a donation.

Mental Health Awareness Week ends with a Great Garden Party here at Cherry Tree on Saturday 20th May from 10.30am to 2.30pm.

If you would like to host your own garden party – which can be a coffee morning, afternoon tea, networking event, a book swap or any gathering of your choice sign up at to receive a Fundraising Pack.

We hope that you enjoy any (or all!) of our fundraising events and look forward to seeing you at the Nursery soon.
