“‘We are very grateful to Philip and Alice Barton-Wright for generously agreeing to open up their stunning gardens at La Haye du Puits to raise money for Les Bourgs Hospice.”
“Few people can fail to wonder what is behind the property’s granite walls and so this is a rare opportunity,” said chairman of the Friends of Les Bourgs Jack Honeybill.
‘There is plenty to do for all of the family and all we can do is hope that the weather is kind to us to allow us to raise as much money as possible,” he said.
