The hospice garden brings so much joy to residents

Funding has been pledged to maintain Wirral Hospice St John’s garden, which will include an enhanced planting programme.
The garden is a welcome addition as it provides a colourful and peaceful environment that delights visitors, families, staff and most importantly, benefits patients.
The Cheshire Freemasons Charity initially helped to transform the Wirral, Merseyside garden, giving it a makeover, and have since made the pledge to maintain it.
By donating a combination of money for new planting, their time and energy, the Freemasons made a substantial contribution to the successful ‘Open Garden’ weekend last June, which raised funds for the hospice.
Wirral Hospice St John’s clinical services manager, Helen Parkinson, said: “We’re so grateful for the continued support of our friends at Cheshire Freemasons Charity.
“As well as donating welcome funds, they have worked cheerfully and diligently to enhance the Hospice garden to the great benefit of our patients and their visitors.”
