Wirral Hospice St John’s garden
THE charity which helped transform Wirral Hospice St John’s garden has pledged funding for its maintenance and an enhanced planting programme.
Last year, members of Cheshire Freemasons alongside their wives, other organisations and an army of volunteers, came together to help the hospice complete its garden makeover.
By donating a combination of money for new planting, their valuable time, considerable ‘muscle’ and no little expertise, the Freemasons made a substantial contribution to the eventual successful ‘Open Garden’ weekend last June, which raised even more money for the Hospice.
The space now provides a colourful and peaceful environment which delights visitors, families, staff and most importantly, benefits patients.
Helen Parkinson, Wirral Hospice St John’s clinical services manager, 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.”
