The fantastic news that the National Gardens Scheme (NGS) is to support Horatio’s Garden Stoke Mandeville was announced in today’s Telegraph.
The NGS has an interesting history dating back to the 1850’s that has always been closely related to health and nursing. Since its foundation, the National Gardens Scheme has donated over £45 million to its beneficiary charities, of which nearly £23 million has been donated within the last ten years. The National Gardens Scheme’s commitment to nursing and caring remains constant, and the charity continues to grow and flourish.
The donation of £130,000 to the third Horatio’s Garden which will be built at Stoke Mandeville Hospital will make a significant difference to the fundraising campaign and help to bring Joe Swift’s spectacular designs to life, giving patients of all ages with spinal cord injuries a relaxing, therapeutic garden adjacent to the wards, greatly benefiting their quality of life and wellbeing during their long hospital stay.
