For many of the children and families that we support, Greenfingers gardens are the only opportunity they will have to spend time outdoors together as a family. Whilst many people may take for granted the simple pleasure of being able to enjoy a garden, for these children, their siblings and their families, the chance to spend time together outdoors and away from the bedside is precious.
For Zayn and his family at Helen & Douglas House in Oxford the outdoor space that Greenfingers provides is a safe and secure environment in which Zayn can spend time with his siblings playing football and having valuable family time.
“Being able to come to the garden and spend family time together knowing that Zayn is cared for means the world to us.” Nadia, Zayn’s Mum
Greenfingers are currently revisiting the space at Helen & Douglas House to create a sheltered outdoor area that will used by families like Zayn’s to enjoy the benefits of the outdoors all year round.
