Gardens, allotments, and balconies became havens for millions of people during the long weeks of lockdown. They have provided us with relief from stress, anxiety and isolation and shown us the importance of a breath of fresh air. At the same time, the nursing charities we support, like Marie Curie, Parkinsons and The Queen's Nursing Institute, have been heroically on the front line of the pandemic.

To celebrate the nation's gardens and give much needed support to these nurses, the National Garden Scheme has launched The Great British Garden Party.

Your donation will make a real difference to the nursing charities whose work continues during the Covid-19 pandemic. They are caring for people living with cancer whose treatments were cancelled, looking after people isolated at home for months, or offering palliative care in hospices.

Coronavirus has brought terrible challenges and real tragedy for many people. In the face of such adversity our gardens have assumed a wholly new importance and we want to capture this while it is still fresh in everyone's minds. At the same time, the nursing charities that the National Garden Scheme supports have made a formidable, but largely unsung, contribution through the pandemic and we want everyone to join us in thanking them. George Plumptre, Chief Executive of the National Garden Scheme .
