Here we look at the second story that appeared in The People's Friend this month, John Ashley highlights some of recently opened gardens and the continuous FUNdraising necessary for these new garden spaces.
Hospice Gardens can be more than decorative thanks to Greenfingers Charity
Many people find gardens peaceful places and gardening a rewarding hobby. Perhaps you do too.
They realise that being surrounded by flowers, vegetables and fruit is a rewarding delight to the soul and few could survive without having access to a garden or balcony.
That’s the reason Greenfingers Charity continues to raise money to build gardens in children’s hospices right across the UK. These specially designed areas with easy access for wheelchairs and beds mean that life-limited children and their families and carers have an open-air space where they can draw strength and support from plants and visiting wildlife.
To find out how Greenfingers gardens provide all these benefits and more, we asked its current Chairman, John Ashley about some of the highlights of recently opened gardens and the continuous FUNdraising necessary for these new garden spaces.
