On Sunday 17 September, Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), the international charity that works to support the suffering and persecuted Church and to promote religious freedom, will hold an open day in the gardens of Gresgarth Hall, home of award-winning garden designer, Lady Arabella Lennox-Boyd. Located in the village of Caton, just outside of Lancaster, the stunning gardens of Gresgarth Hall were originally redesigned by Lady Arabella in 1980 and have been extended and embellished over the decades.
Information about ACN’s work in Syria and Iraq will be on display and visitors will have the opportunity to send messages of support to Christians living in war-torn Syria as well as those planning to return to their homes on the Nineveh Plains in Iraq. Refreshments will be available to purchase, along with ACN trading items, including needlework and jewellery made by Syrian Christians from Aleppo. ACN literature will be available to take away.
This event is a wonderful opportunity to view these beautiful gardens and to help ACN at the same time; a donation of just £5 will support a family in Syria or Iraq for a whole day!
Entrance is £5 (accompanied children 16 and under free); all proceeds will go towards ACN emergency relief projects in Syria and Iraq. Most of the garden is wheel chair accessible. Dogs are not permitted.
