Can You Dig It

 St Helena Hospice has teamed up with The Skinny Jean Gardener, Lee Connelly, to bring you Can You Dig It!

New for 2018, we are challenging everyone from budding gardeners to seasoned professionals to grow and sell produce for St Helena Hospice.

To get you started we are offering 5 packets of seeds for a suggested minimum donation of £2. These seeds will also be available to pick up from our Fundraising Office until March 1st for more details please call Amanda Findley on 01206 931468 or email

This is a perfect opportunity to start your gardening career as The Skinny Jean Gardener will be guiding you through the process via tips and tricks videos that will be posted to our Facebook Page, as well as Lee's YouTube Channel.

Already a keen Gardener? Take on this challenge and get the opportunity to pick the brain of TV Gardener Lee Connelly and get the tips that will really make the difference to your produce. Lee will be taking questions throughout the campaign at the recordings of his live shows or at The Skinny Jean Gardener Festival on August 18th (more details to come).

Come harvest time we will be asking participants to sell their excess produce to help raise money for the hospice.

 At St Helena Hospice we help local people with an incurable illness to live well and die with dignity and choice, this comes at a price and without the support of people like you we would not be able to provide care for those who really need it.

How to get involved

  • Collect your starter seeds from the St Helena Hospice Fundraising Office before March 1st
  • Check out the tips and tricks videos produced by The Skinny Jean Gardener on our Facebook Page
  • Grow your produce!
  • Sell excess produce and help support St Helena Hospice.

There will be a prize for the person who raises the most money at the end of the campaign. This prize will be presented by The Skinny Jean Gardener on his Live Show!

Also featured on Lee's show will be the participant who grew the ugliest vegetable!
