How we can help Keeping well Gardening and creative activities One of our greatest prides are our beautiful gardens, tended by patients and volunteers. Once a week, the patient gardening group meets to look after the flowers and produce in the purpose built, wheelchair accessible greenhouse in the Hospice grounds. Every year the gardens grow bigger, brighter and more colourful - and when the season is right, there are lots of vegetables and fruit to take home. Being creative is a great way to express and explore emotions, whether it is through painting, drawing, writing or something else creative. It can also help provide a distraction from pain, anxiety and stress - and can help improve concentration levels and stamina. Our Living Life Creatively group meets once a week and gives people the chance to complete a project of their choosing.
