THE Pam Golding Properties’ Gardens of East London garden show will be taking place this weekend in aid of various charities around the city.
Starting out six years ago, the garden show has continuously grown and now incorporates 27 of the most beautiful gardens around East London.
“The garden show is really just a way for Pam Golding to give back and aid various charities in our community,” said Pam Golding photographer and Gardens of East London organiser Roxanne Wetzel.
Pam Golding facilitates the garden show each year whereby various charities are hosted by the different gardens on display.
This year, guests can support 23 different charities, including Pet Pals, the SPCA, Masithethe Counselling Services, Choc, Guardians of Hope, Salem Baby Centre and Cansa.
Modelling shows, dancers, singers, craft and food stalls, as well as tea gardens, will entertain visitors.
“Over the years, the garden show has helped out the various charities and it’s such a great opportunity for East London to support them,” Wentzel said.
With more than 3500 people visiting the different gardens last year, Pam Golding hopes for the Gardens of East London to continue growing and making a difference for the many charities in need.
At R50 per person, guests will have unlimited access to all 27 gardens for the show’s duration.
“Each charity is selling tickets for their host garden and keep all the proceeds from their ticket sales. Many charities have now even taken to establishing their own beautiful gardens on their premises,” Wentze said.
Tickets can be purchased at the Pam Golding Properties offices at 34 Pearce Street, Berea or 67A Main Road, Gonubie, as well as at any of the participating charities. Children under 12 years old enter for free.
