The Charborough Estate’s Highwood Garden will be open to raise money for Julia’s House on Sunday 28 April

giving you a chance to enjoy the wonderful garden and its magnificent collection of rhododendrons and azaleas.

Established by the late Admiral Drax, Highwood Garden is only open for a few days each year, so it is a rare opportunity to enjoy an afternoon stroll in this beautiful woodland setting.  There will be a whole host of fundraising and craft stalls, and tea and cake will be available.  A special poetry book created by local poets will also be on sale.  All the funds raised during the open day will be going to support Julia’s House, the Dorset and Wiltshire children’s hospice charity, supporting local children and their families.

“Highwood Garden is at its best in springtime, so this is a great chance to enjoy this really special place and help support Julia’s House and its work with families in Dorset and Wiltshire,” says Laura Kelly, Community Fundraising Manager at Julia’s House.

“Enjoying the beautiful garden and afternoon tea is a perfect way to spend an April afternoon.  We’re very grateful to the Drax family.”

Highwood Garden is open in aid of Julia’s House on Sunday 28 April from 2.30pm-6.00pm. Entrance will be £5 for adults and £2.50 for children (6-16 years). No dogs are permitted (with the exception of guide dogs) due to the presence of deer in the park.
