THE award-winning Laskey Farm in Thelwall, Warrington opened its stunning gardens over the weekend to help raise funds to support breast cancer patients at Warrington and Halton Teaching Hospitals, with a special “Moobs and Boobs” fund-raising event.

In partnership with the National Open Gardens Scheme, the Farm welcomed visitors to its 1.5 acre site which features herbaceous borders, rose beds and a grass maze with prairie-style planting.
A network of pools accommodates both specimen Koi and terrapins, creating an interconnected water garden that includes a swimming pond. Family-friendly, Laskey Farm offers a treasure hunt, treehouse and even a mini menagerie with chickens, rabbits and guinea fowl.

The Hospitals’ Head of Fundraising, Helen Higginson said: “WHH Charity would like to extend a special ‘thank you’ to Laskey Farm’s generous hosts Wendy and Howard Platt for their generosity in sharing their beautiful gardens with us for such a worthy cause. ”

A luscious selection of donated home-made bakes and refreshments were on sale to help raise money to support patients living with or recovering from breast cancer through the hospital’s ‘Moobs & Boobs’ campaign.
