how we are funded

Your Support

We are totally reliant on public support to meet the build and running costs of each Horatio’s Garden. 

The charity is funded entirely by donations and it is thanks to the incredible generosity of our donors that we are able to continue improving the lives of everyone affected by spinal injury. Our Friends and individual donors make a real difference and any amount, no matter how great or small, helps to ensure that Horatio’s Garden will always be there for those who need it most.

Fundraising is also crucial to the success of the charity. Every year we host a variety of events in both the gardens and at various locations across the country in order to celebrate our fantastic supporters and raise both money and awareness for the charity. Furthermore, we are also lucky to be supported by lots of third-party fundraisers, who do everything from climbing Kilimanjaro to hosting a Fabulous Summer Tea Party in order to support the charity. If you have a fundraising idea, please do get in touch by emailing 

Similarly, Horatio’s Garden really value their corporate partnerships. We are thankful to already have the support of a few wonderful businesses, including Bolt Burdon Kemp, Baxter Healthcare, Hozelock and Hugh James, but we would love to establish relationships with many more. If you think your business could help by sponsoring an event, volunteering in the gardens, becoming a corporate partner, making us your charity of the year, or encouraging payroll giving, please email 

Finally, the incredible generosity of various Trusts & Foundations has ensured that we have so far been able to open five gardens, plan a further two and set out signs on planting hope in four further locations in the UK. 

We are so grateful to each and every one of our supporters for making our vital work possible. Your commitment to funding Horatio’s Garden is the only thing that ensures our stunning sanctuaries will always be there for those who need them.
