Gardens open for fundraiser
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.”
