On Sunday 20th May Petersham lodge in Richmond opened its garden gates to the public raising over £1,800 for The Cure Parkinson’s Trust (CPT).

The sun was shining all day on the 3½ acres of beautiful gardens that surround the mid-eighteenth century Georgian house, as 230 people visited its grounds to explore the stunning views across a small lake to a folly and enchanting paths leading to a bluebell glade, magnificent specimen trees and quaint vegetable garden.

Guests were also treated to tea and coffee with a selection of delicious cakes that were kindly donated by Hummingbird Bakery and Waitrose for the fundraising event.

CPT is hugely grateful to Princess Loewenstein for opening Petersham Lodge gardens to the public for this special afternoon, raising vital funds which will be directed towards our ground-breaking research into a cure for Parkinson’s.
