MORE than £1,100 was raised by the Rotary Club of Sherwood Forest when 10 gardens were opened to the public across Ollerton and Boughton.
Around 200 people - from as far afield as Lincoln, Northampton and Stockport - visited the gardens to help raise the total.
As well as taking the opportunity to see the gardens in full bloom, visitors were also entertained by local pianist Chris Miggells and took part in tombolas.
Organisers say the money will be spent in the local area.
