Explore the first open gar­den event for South Bucks Hospice

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

SOUTH Bucks Hospice, which has been es­tab­lished in the area for al­most 30 years, is invit­ing lo­cal peo­ple to come along to its very first open gar­dens event on Sun­day, Au­gust 31.

Visit Pusey House on Amer­sham Road, High Wy­combe, from 1pm and en­joy the beau­ti­ful sights the gar­den has to of­fer.

Explore the nat­u­ral beauty of its vary­ing blooms and hid­den trea­sures as you en­joy an af­ter­noon minia­ture cream tea and a glass of bub­bly in sup­port of the hospice.

For keen gar­den­ers, there will be an op­por­tu­nity to buy pot­ted plants and lis­ten to a talk from a land­scape gar­dener who will be in at­ten­dance on the day and will be talk­ing about gar­den de­sign and lay­out.

The gar­den plays a re­ally im­por­tant part in heal­ing and re­lax­ation for pa­tients at­tend­ing the hospice.

South Bucks Hospice pro­vides ex­pert ser­vices to lo­cal peo­ple with in­cur­able ill­nesses, lym­phedema suf­fer­ers and those with chronic ill­nesses.

The hospice helps with pain and symp­tom con­trol, pro­vides ex­pert pal­lia­tive and clin­i­cal nurs­ing care, and emo­tional and prac­ti­cal sup­port.

This in­cludes per­sonal coun­selling ser­vices to pa­tients as well as those sup­port­ing them, such as fam­ily, friends and car­ers.

For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.sbh.org.uk. AN IN-STORE col­lec­tion and other events at a su­per­mar­ket has raised more than £2,000 for Iain Rennie Hospice at Home – and the char­ity has said ‘thank you’ to the store and its staff by pre­sent­ing them with an en­graved plaque.

For the past year, Waitrose, in Penn Road, Bea­cons­field, has had Iain Rennie as its char­ity of the year. Dur­ing this pe­riod, an in-store col­lec­tion was held over two days, which man­aged to raise al­most £1,000 thanks to the gen­eros­ity of Waitrose cus­tomers.

The store then hosted a ‘Cheese and Wine Call my Bluff’ evening at St Teresa’s Church Hall, which also brought in £1,000.

Through­out the year, Waitrose has helped the Bea­cons­field fundrais­ing group for Iain Rennie by sup­ply­ing ad­vice, wine and glasses for a num­ber of other events.

As a mark of grat­i­tude, Iain Rennie fundrais­ers have pre­sented the staff at Waitrose with an en­graved plaque in recog­ni­tion and ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the gen­er­ous help they have given.
