The Lost Gardens of Heligan are proud to sponsor four local chosen charities. Cornwall Air Ambulance, People & Gardens, Spectrum and the Sowenna Appeal.
Our festive visitors helped us to raise over £12,500 for these charities over the festive period as we opened our gates for two charity days on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
Over the course of the two days, we welcomed over 6250 visitors, who came to walk off the festive excesses, blow away the cobwebs and enjoy a winter stroll through the historic 200 acre estate with family and friends. These annual charity days proved to be as popular as ever smashing all previous records and helping to kick start the fundraising year for four local charities. The local community and the atmosphere created in the gardens over these charity days was the epitome of generosity showing that Christmas really was ‘the season for giving’.
