As part of our commitment to creating social value, our volunteers visited Richard House Children’s Hospice early November to help maintain their beautiful sensory garden.
Richard House Children’s Hospice helps to support children and their families lead as happy a life as possible when dealing with a life-limiting health condition. Opened in 2000, Richard House was London's first children's hospice serving communities in the south east of London and Essex.
Our merry band of volunteers, Rachel Mildon, Kate Chidlow, Melissa Gannaway, Aderemi Akinloye, Joanna Crane, Muhaimin Choudhury, put their green fingers to work, planting flowers, weeding, clearing debris, and tidying up the grounds, creating a haven of joy for all.
The wonderful and large garden in the hospice is full of different creative and playful areas including a dragon boat beach area and a tepee! The garden makes a real difference to the children who are cared for at the hospice and their families.
