Events

Wimborne in Bloom is a completely voluntary organisation. We need to raise in excess of £19,000 a year to fund our operation and maintain our high standards (read more about our finances here). The fund-raising events arranged so far are listed below. We would be delighted to hear from anyone who would be willing to host an event for us.
