Cricklewood campaigner will open her garden to raise money for charity

Helen Marcus is taking part in the National Garden Scheme Charity

A kind-hearted campaigner will be opening her garden to the public this Sunday to raise money for charity.

Helen Marcus, of Anson Road, Cricklewood, will donate the proceeds made on the afternoon to Macmillan nurses and other good causes.

Mrs Marcus, a retired opera singer, has been at the forefront of a campaign against controversial plans to demolish Willesden Green Library and also battle with the crusaders to save six library branches from closure.

Last July, she opened her gardens and raised more than �700 which she donated to the crusaders battling to save Preston, Barham Park, Tokyngton, Neasden, Cricklewood and Kensal Rise from the axe.

Campaigners lost their High Court case and Brent Council closed the branches last October.

This year she is opening her garden as part of the National Garden Scheme Charity.
