A BEECH Hill charity is set for a summer full of fundraising fun.

Thrive, which uses gardening to improve the lives of disabled, isolated and vulnerable people, is to hold a series of events at its base in The Geoffrey Udall Centre.

On Friday, July 11, singer Jasmine Bleth and band The Bacuma Boys will take to the stage in a musical marquee.

Tickets are £15 and include a light supper, with real ale and soft drinks on sale.

The following day, Saturday, July 12, the charity will host an open day from 1pm, in which visitors can enjoy the gardens, including a Victorian walled garden, five disability show gardens, a conservation area, Oriental garden and much more.

The entry fee for the event, which will include tours in the afternoon, is a donation of £3.50 per person and £1 for children aged over five.

On Sunday, July 20, Thrive will hold an Edwardian-themed garden party.

The ticket price of £35 will include a performance by musical entertainer Fiona Harrison, a cream tea with cakes, a glass of bubbly and a tour of the walled gardens.

The event will run from 2.30pm until 5pm.
