Annual Hatch House event raises £20,000 for Salisbury hospice


The Open Garden at Hatch House has this year raised in excess of £20,000 for Salisbury Hospice.
The annual event, held on Saturday the 10th of September this year, is always hosted by Sir Henry and Lady Rumbold and organised by the Tisbury Fundraising Committee.
The event is beloved for its vintage and pre-loved designer clothes, shoes, hats and bags, but the varied stalls also include antiques and collectables, raffle, cakes, organic produce, local honey, plants, ethical gifts and homewares, jumble and books. Refreshments were provided by a team of wonderful volunteers and a barbecue by Compton McRae. The glorious weather ensured guests could make the most of the outdoors and were able to sit and enjoy the idyllic scenery that surrounds the house.

All leftover items from the stalls were donated to Alabaré, a local charity that supports the homeless. Salisbury Hospice Charity are keen to thank Sir Henry and Lady Rumbold for once again welcoming the event to the grounds of Hatch House. Notable thanks went to Lady Rumbold and her team of helpers for their many hours of organising the clothes for sale, the entire Tisbury committee for their hard work organising and running the event and all the Hospice volunteers who helped the event run so smoothly.
Salisbury Hospice say the money will fund vital hospice services, ensuring the service remains free to patients and their families.

Tamsin Murley, Community fundraiser for Salisbury Hospice Charity said: ‘I am delighted to announce the huge fundraising total for this event, and express our huge gratitude to the Tisbury Committee and all extended volunteers. The continued support shown by Sir Henry & Lady Rumbold is phenomenal and they are without doubt the heart and soul of this event. We look forward to seeing you all again next year!’
