Gardener’s ‘hidden’ garden raised £550 for charity

OVER £500 was raised for charity by one local gardener during Frome Festival’s Hidden Gardens event.

Opening her garden to the public, Lynda Kinderlan – with the help of two donkeys – raised £550 for Fair Frome and Critchill School. 

“Well, she’s done it again this year with the addition of two donkeys, Cerys and Ffion,” said Lynda’s friend Christine Perrett. “The donkeys were a great attraction for the children but due to the hot weather couldn’t stay too long. The donkeys’ owners, Caroline and Charles, very kindly transported them to Lynda’s to help with the day.” 

For the event, Lynda was supported by Lenka Grimes from Fair Frome. Lynda and Lenka have said that they are grateful to those who donated cakes for the event, so that they could provide refreshments to visitors to the beautiful garden in return for a donation.
