On Sunday 22nd July, Sir Alec Reed – Founder of the Big Give and Reed Recruitment – will once again be opening the stunning gardens of his Manor House in Little Compton, Moreton in Marsh,Warwickshire GL56 0RZ. This is only the third time in 1,000 years that the gardens have been open to the public and they will be open for one day only!
The Manor was originally given to the Abbey of St Denys by Edward the Confessor in 1065 and also belonged to William Juxon, the priest who accompanied Charles I to the scaffold.
Sir Alec Reed said, ‘I am pleased to be able to share these wonderful gardens and their incredible history to raise money for hundreds of charities on the BigGive.org.uk.’.
The Big Garden Give will take place from 2pm to 5pm and entrance is £5. Upon entry, each guest will then receive a £5 donation voucher to give to any charity of their choice on theBigGive.org.uk. This means that 100% of each ticket price will go directly to charity, with last year’s event raising over £2,000.
This is a rare chance to visit a beautiful, local garden and raise money for your favourite charity at the same time. The 7 acre garden features; herbaceous borders, a wild flower garden, an arboretum, a picnic and play area and the smallest deer park in the country.
Tickets can be purchased on the day and we look forward to seeing you there!
The Big Give is a not for profit organisation aimed at promoting intelligent philanthropy. It was founded by Sir Alec Reed in 2007 and provides a platform for charities to promote their work to prospective donors.
At last year’s Garden Give we raised £2,000 for charity and welcomed 400 visitors. It was the second time in 1,000 years that the garden had been opened to the public.
