Firm keen to continue its blooming successful sponsorship

A North Shields business is hoping for another blooming good time after continuing its sponsorship of a horticultural event.

Wade Financial will be the primary sponsors of the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) in the north east for the second year running.

The NGS’ garden openings will see more than 50 gardens in the region open to the public at various points throughout the year, with a further seven available to view via arrangement only.

Wade Financial’s Ian Little said: “We’re delighted to be backing the NGS again.

“Having witnessed the work of the volunteers first hand last year, we were all overwhelmed by the passion of those involved – not just towards their gardens, but towards the various charitable causes that the scheme supports.

“Many of those charities are close to my heart as I personally know people whose quality of life has been improved by the likes of Marie Curie and Macmillan.

“The beauty, scale and variety of the gardens themselves is a bonus.”
