Chocolate Gala Fundraising Day

First issued in March 2013

March’s fundraising Gala at the Botanical Gardens raised nearly £80,000, in large part thanks to the interest in home-grown cocoa paste, derived from the Gardens’ very own Theobrama Cacoa plants, one of which had produced 11 ripe pods. This horticultural feat is commemorated on the March 2013 stamp. Sadly, the gum is not chocolate flavoured.

Joshua Wormwood’s somewhat flattering portrait of Lady Emma Hamilton commemorates the bicentenary of her brief sojourn on Pharos.
