AXE Valley residents with beautiful or unusual gardens are being called on to open their gates in aid of Hospiscare.

Last year the charity's Open Gardens scheme raised �25,000 from the programme, which ran from March to July.

Fundraising manager Louise Beeken said: "We have a fantastic network of talented gardeners and every year we have a more varied selection of inspiring and delightful private gardens for visitors to enjoy.

"The gardens are a source of inspiration but also help to provide much needed support for people with life-threatening illness and their loved ones."
