NGS raised more than £4 million nationally in 2017 for various health charities including £500,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support, £500,000 to Hospice UK and £150,000 to Parkinson's UK. In order to continue to raise these vast sums, it must continue to attract new gardens to the scheme and replace any gardens whose owners are no longer able to welcome visitors.
