A prestigious country garden will be opening its doors to the public in celebration of the 45th anniversary of the Lingen Davies Cancer Fund. The regional charity, which was established in 1979, will be hosting a Gin and Jazz lunch at Shoothill House near Ford next month, and organizers are hoping for a large turnout to join in the festivities.

Scheduled for Sunday, June 9th, the event is just one of many activities planned by the charity to commemorate 45 years of enhancing cancer services for individuals affected by cancer in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin, and Mid Wales.

Naomi Atkin, CEO of Lingen Davies, expressed her excitement about sharing the anniversary celebrations with the community at this special event. She extended her gratitude to Mr. and Mrs. Lloyd for allowing the charity to use their stunning gardens for the occasion.

The Gin and Jazz event promises to be a relaxing afternoon in the beautiful gardens, featuring live music and a selection of food and drinks. Tickets for the event are priced at £25 per person, including a welcome drink, ploughman’s platter, and live acoustic music with gin available from The Shropshire Distillery.

Shoothill House, known for being part of the National Gardens Scheme in the past, has granted permission for the Lingen Davies event to take place in its impressive walled garden and large greenhouse.

Additionally, the community can look forward to other celebratory events, such as a roadshow in Shrewsbury Square and Southwater, Telford, where information about the charity and upcoming events will be available. There will also be a ’45 for 45′ fundraising campaign to raise £45,000 over the summer.

Since its inception, Lingen Davies Cancer Fund has significantly improved cancer treatment and care for over 100,000 individuals, making a direct impact on the community. Prior to the charity’s establishment, people had to travel to Manchester or the West Midlands for cancer services.
