A portion of the sale of Liz McGarth Roses this weekend will go towards St Luke’s Hospice.

McGrath is renowned for her collection of South African five-star hotels in the Relais and Chateaux group, including the Cellars-Hohenhort in Constantia.

St Luke’s Hospice is the beneficiary of this weekend’s open garden at the hotel.

Visitors can stroll through the gardens of the Cellars-Hohenhort on Saturday and Sunday from 09:00 to 15:00.

Entrance tickets cost R50 each and include tea and scones, as well as entry into a lucky draw.

The gardens on the slopes of Table Mountain are particularly beautiful at this time of the year with a display of indigenous flora.

The Liz McGrath Rose is also known as the St Luke’s Hospice Remembrance Rose. In appreciation, her family has dedicated this rose to her.

St Luke’s Hospice is one of the oldest hospices in South Africa, celebrating 35 years of caring this year.

Melissa Zaayman, spokesperson for the hospice, says the hospice provides services to referred patients across Cape Town from all walks of life, all religions and all cultures, at no cost.

“We are therefore heavily reliant on donations and sponsorships from kind-hearted individuals and corporates who, like St Luke’s Hospice, are passionate about making a difference in the lives of the terminally ill,” she says.

On any given day the hospice’s team serves patients and their families at their in-patient unit at Kenilworth and at seven community centres. A large base of community health workers serve patients in their homes under the supervision of qualified professional nurses who attend to bedridden patients suffering from HIV/Aids and chronic diseases, and provide essential services and do health promotion and as such preventing diseases. They also do TB and ARV treatment adherence.V For more information contact Zaayman on 021 797 5335 or or visit
