The National Gardens Scheme raises over £2.6 million every year for national nursing, gardening and other charitable causes. It is the largest single donor to Macmillan Nurses and to Marie Curie.

Visitors to NGS gardens will also have the satisfaction of knowing that their entrance fee is supporting valuable causes, as about 80p in every £1 collected at the garden gate goes straight to the NGS beneficiary charities, which include Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer Care and Carers Trust.
