Heligan welcomed over 2700 visitors, who came to walk off the festive excesses and enjoy a winter walk through Heligan's 200 acre estate. Despite the weather, these annual charity days proved as popular as ever with the local community beating previous December records.
George Elworthy, managing director of The Lost Gardens of Heligan, said: "We would like to thank all our visitors and staff who have given so generously on our charity days. We know how much the fundraising means to all the charities and we are delighted to help raise the profile of the wonderful work they all do."
Further donations were also received during Heligan's magical Cornish Christmas Nights which also attracted record visitor numbers.
Heligan's visitors raised an incredible £5,392.07 which will be shared between local charities - People and Gardens, Cornwall Hospice Care, St Petroc's Society and Cornwall Air Ambulance.
Susie Croft, head of income generation for Cornwall Air Ambulance said: "We are extremely grateful to the staff and visitors of The Lost Gardens of Heligan for another year of outstanding support. Over the years they have collected more than £9500 for Cornwall Air Ambulance which has enabled over 50 hours of fuel for our lifesaving missions throughout the county."
