We welcome Barfoot and Thompson again as our Platinum Sponsor for our 2018 Barfoot & Thompson Franklin Hospice Garden Ramble.
Through your support in 2016 we were able to raise $95,000 to provide specialist training for the palliative care nurses who provide superb care to terminally ill patients in the Franklin area. The funds have been used to upgrade nurses qualifications so the team is amongst the most qualified in palliative care in the country.
Our fourth event is now scheduled to take place on the weekend of November 10 and 11, 2018.
This year the gardens are located in Drury Hills, Ramarama, Great South Road, Tuakau, Pukekohe and the Bombay Hills areas of Franklin district. Again there is a huge variety in gardens - many hidden away from public viewing until this weekend. Gardens are open from 10am - 4pm each day of 10th and 11th November.
In addition to the Garden Ramble we will feature a Christmas market on Saturday 10th November (venue to be confirmed) with gifts for early bird Christmas shopping. This market will be even bigger and better with a wider range of stalls than previously.
Franklin Hospice invite you to make a weekend of it. Take a peek at some of these hidden garden gems, share lunch with friends at our refreshment stops en route and on Saturday call into our Christmas market for a bit of pre Christmas shopping .
Tickets will be available both online from early August until Thursday 8th November and after that but these will need to be collected from the Christmas market. No tickets will be posted after Monday 5th November.
Tickets will also be on sale are on sale at Simply Giving, 27 King Street, Pukekohe Ph: 09 238 5082 and other selected outlets which will be listed closer to early August.
