VENTNOR Botanic Garden will stage its first Donation Day on Wednesday.

Visitors to the garden will be encouraged to make a donation, no matter how large or small, for entry in place of the standard admission fee.

The garden has more than 23 acres and rare subtropical plants and trees from around the world, there is also large outdoor playground and a children’s activity trail.

John Curtis, director of the Community Interest Company which runs the garden, said: "We want local residents to re-discover and re-visit the garden and we think this is a great idea to help local families in these tough, budget-conscious, times."

The garden is open from 10am.
