The Barnsdale Gardens team are proud to support the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice by donating a selection of their plants to this worthy cause. The 4500 snowdrops, 900 winter aconites and dogwoods were presented to Martin Russell, the Head of Operations at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice, last week.
Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice people through the most difficult times of their lives. Whether that’s a terminal illness, the loss of a loved one or a neurological condition.
Nick Hamilton owner of Barnsdale Gardens stated "Having experienced the wonderful work they do and how important the outside spaces are for the well-being of all their patients and staff at the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice it has been a pleasure to make sure these spaces continued their benefit throughout the whole year." Nick continues " I do not think there is anyone whose spirits cannot be lifted by the sight of snowdrops and winter aconites cheering up those cold, damp and dreary winter days and we hope that the plants will provide a boost to people receiving care and those visiting the hospice or working to be there when it matters."
Martin Russell, head of operations at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice said "All 20 of our patient rooms look out onto the garden areas. This kind donation will enable us to add some winter / spring colour for our patients and their families to enjoy. The snowdrops have now been planted by our gardening volunteers into our lawned areas and the aconites have been planted in our flower beds. These will all enhance the view for our patients and this gift to the Hospice is very much appreciated by us all."
Barnsdale Gardens think the work that the hospice do is incredible and are only too pleased to help them in this way by bringing beautiful blooms for everyone at Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice to enjoy.
