Recordbreaking £26k raised by Hatch House Event!


The annual Open Garden event at Hatch House last month broke a new record, raising a grand total of more than £26,000 for Salisbury Hospice Charity.
Visitors eagerly lined up, waiting for the garden gates to open. They explored an array of stalls offering vintage clothing, collectibles, books, hats, shoes, and more. The glorious weather complemented the garden’s bloom, providing a picturesque backdrop for attendees to enjoy the scenery, unwind in the
17th-century walled Dutch garden with Pimms, savour barbecue from Compton McRae, and delight in the music of local vocalist Charlie Greenwood.
Sir Henry and Lady Rumbold expressed their absolute delight at achieving a new fundraising record this year, with lady Rumbold admitting she was ‘..struck dumb by the generosity of everyone giving their time, the most precious of all things.’
They conveyed their heartfelt gratitude to the team at Salisbury Hospice, and the volunteers and the Tisbury Committee for their relentless efforts that contributed to the Open Garden’s resounding success. They also extended their thanks to everyone who generously donated items for sale and to the numerous visitors who attended the event.
Tamsin Murley, Community Fundraiser for Salisbury Hospice, said: ‘The continued support shown by Sir Henry and Lady Rumbold is phenomenal, and they are without doubt the heart and soul of this event.’
