Our main fundraising event is the annual Hidden Gardens of Hadleigh event. This year it will be held on Saturday 4th September 2021. In 2019 it raised nearly £3,600 for The Friends of St Mary's. The 2020 edition had to be 'virtual' because of Covid-19 restrictions, so the Gardens sub-committee organised a photography contest covering 77 Hadleigh gardens. It went live on 6th June 2020 linked to a gofundme donation app.

Plans for 2021 are taking shape and it is hoped to put on both the visits and the photo contest.
