Who we are
We are a national charity dedicated to supporting children who spend time in hospices around the UK. Our aim is to create inspiring gardens for them and their families to relax in and benefit from.
We create beautiful, well-designed outdoor spaces for children to enjoy with their family, friends and siblings, whether through play and fun, or therapeutic rest and relaxation.
Greenfingers Charity is driven by the belief that time spent outdoors, away from the bedside, can offer children and families under considerable stress a vital opportunity to embrace the benefits of being in the fresh air and engaging with the natural environment.
We are committed to creating specially designed, stimulating garden spaces that can bring many benefits to children with life-limiting conditions. 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.
Our team and trustees
Greenfingers Charity is managed by a small group of dedicated individuals. Our Board of Trustees is made up of a team of experts drawn from the horticulture and gardening trade together with those from other sectors, who give their time generously to support the charity both strategically and directly through our campaigns and initiatives. All trustees, and our Chairman, work for Greenfingers Charity on a voluntary basis.
Over 60 Greenfingers charity gardens
To date, we have created over 60 inspiring hospice gardens around the country and have a further waiting list of hospices that need our help now.
