Sunday 27 March – Sunday 4 September
Always an annual highlight, our Open Gardens season feels even more special this time around. That’s because 2022 is our 40th anniversary year!
We simply couldn’t have reached this milestone without the kindness of all out supporters. This includes everyone who attends our Open Gardens and, of course, the big-hearted people who throw open their beautiful gardens to welcome them. Together, over the 12 years the scheme has been running, you have raised more than £429,000 to help local families receive our charity’s compassionate care, and we couldn’t be more grateful!
A huge thank you to NFU Mutual Plymouth for sponsoring this year’s scheme.

Thanks to the generosity of reowned Devon-based artist Yvonne Coomber, the stunning, unique artwork featured on the cover of our Open Gardens brochure could be adorning your wall.
Yvonne has very kindly created the hand-embellished canvas print for St Luke’s in recognition of this being our charity’s 40th anniversary and it’s the top prize in our Open Gardens raffle.
Yvonne said: “I’m always delighted to support St Luke’s because its team goes over and above to make an important difference to local families. They provide light to people at the darkest of times, and though the charity has been doing this for 40 years, we must never take it for granted.”
Speaking about her work, she said: “It is my intention to transport the viewer to an effervescent place of happiness that is literally saturated in joy, where dreams are born.”
