MORE than 100 people turned up to the unveiling of a charity garden in Alva on Sunday.

Lynn Cameron has devoted hundreds of hours to her stunning garden and opened it up to the public last year as a way to make money for charity.

She then contacted Scotland's Garden Scheme who this year helped advertise the event.

Much to Lynn's delight, dozens came out – some even 45 minutes early – to have a walk around the beautiful backyard.

Speaking to the Advertiser, Lynn said: "It went really well, although there were a few wee showers and a torrential downpour just after everyone left.

"There were around 100 people and made just over £475. I didn't have a clue how much money to expect to make."

The money raised will go towards the Christians Against Poverty charity through the Tillicoultry Baptist Church.

Not content with this year's record turnout, Lynn said she will definitely be opening it up again next year.

She added: "It is going ahead next year, but I don't need to decide when until October."

Lynn wished to pay a huge thanks to all of the women who came down to help with the teas and coffees as well as those who provided home baking.

A big thank you also went to everyone who attended and donated, and to Mandy from Scotland's Garden Scheme for helping set it up.
