Giving in Memory

Making a donation in memory of a friend or relative who enjoyed the Garden is a lovely way to remember them. To make this as easy as possible, we have established the Giving in Memory Fund. This fund supports Garden projects such as landscaping, new plantings and education. For more information, please visit the Botanic Garden’s website.

If you are a UK taxpayer we may be able to claim Gift Aid on your donation, increasing your gift by 25p for each £1 given, please fill out the Gift Aid information when you donate online.
