Hospice Raising Funds for New Garden

Hospice Raising Funds for New Garden

Greenwich and Bexley Hospice are hoping to raise funds for a new garden.

They are looking for local support to win a national competition and with it, £5,000. They are one of 12 finalists going before a public vote in the Selco Stars competition organised by the Crayford Selco Builders Warehouse.

The competition which attracted hundreds of entries will award the winner £5000 pounds .

Greenwich and Bexley hospice provides free care and support to people with terminal illness, as well as their families and carers and can look after up to  2,500 people every single year.

Louise Bishop, fundraiser for the hospice, said: “We are fortunate to have a stunning woodland setting but that means you have to go down a steep slope to reach our gardens. “We need a new path to improve access, particularly for those in wheelchairs or who are physically frail.

“The garden is a calming, reflective and cheering place and appreciated by everyone at the hospice. If we could win the £5,000, it would go a long way to doing the work needed to make the garden accessible to everyone.”
