Open gardens near Holt raises over £2000 for local charity

Hard-working volunteers for a Norfolk charity raised over £2,300 in just two days – by providing tea and cakes to visitors to one of the county’s most stunning open gardens.

Fundraisers for the Norfolk & Norwich Association for the Blind put on an amazing display of baking at the Stody Lodge Gardens near Holt, with visitors to the gardens tucking into a range of cakes, scones, flapjacks and biscuits worthy of the Great British Bake Off.

NNAB fundraiser Donna Minto, who organised the teams of volunteers across the two days, said, “We were blessed with two sunny afternoons, which brought lots of visitors to the stunning gardens at Stody Lodge. Catering for so many people all in search of a traditional English tea was a big challenge for a team of volunteers, but they rose to it magnificently.

“We want to thank the Stody Estate for allowing us to provide the refreshments and raise money in this way – their generosity has seen so many Norfolk charities benefit over the years. We hope our teas were worthy of one of the most stunning gardens in the county.”
