Open Gardens

Opening the way to changing the future of muscle wasting conditions

Create your own beautiful show garden

We’re super excited to have a garden at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show this year – a great opportunity to raise awareness of muscle wasting and weakening conditions and our work as a charity.

You can get involved by opening your garden to your local community, sharing your passion for plants and at the same time raising money to fund groundbreaking research and life changing support.

We’ll support you with a pack and advise you on how to raise awareness and funds to help change the future of muscle wasting conditions.

Become a garden ambassador

We’re also looking to recruit Garden Ambassadors to help us find gardens to open and support the campaign in their local area. If that sounds like you, please get in touch.

How your money helps

For over 60 years we’ve provided life-changing support for people living with muscle wasting and weakening conditions, funded groundbreaking research and campaigned for people’s rights, access to treatments and better understanding of why muscles matter.

Hold free Information Days

Where you can meet other people affected by muscle wasting and weakening conditions and get expert information and advice.

Train our peer support volunteers

So you can speak to someone who knows exactly what you’re going through.
