Gar­dens open for fundraiser

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

MORE than 350 visi­tors flocked to The Hos­pice of St Fran­cis’s sec­ond open gar­dens event.

Gar­den lovers en­joyed the event on Sun­day.

Clare Hearn­shaw, the hos­pice’s di­rec­tor of care and clin­i­cal de­vel­op­ment, who served tea to guests through­out the af­ter­noon, said: “It was won­der­ful to see so many peo­ple spend­ing an hour or two en­joy­ing the gar­dens, which have al­ways been a mag­i­cal part of our care – an oa­sis of calm and beauty and a ther­a­peu­tic space to heal the an­guish that peo­ple face dur­ing the un­cer­tainty of ill­ness.

“We are a bright, colour­ful, happy place and our gar­dens ra­di­ate this warmth and hap­pi­ness, lift­ing the spir­its of ev­ery­one who vis­its and we’re de­lighted to once again open them to the public.

“I’d like to thank ev­ery­one who came for their in­ter­est and sup­port.”
