The hospice wants to provide a welcoming haven for patients, visitors and wildlife all year round. 

Our volunteer gardeners look after the courtyard garden, a wild flower meadow, a natural pond and our kitchen garden - and they need more help now and throughout the year.

Can you spare a couple of hours a week to help keep our beautiful gardens looking their best? You'd be one of a small team of cheerful volunteers who gather on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to carry out seasonal tasks in the gardens and grounds - or you can pick a time and day that suits you. Looking after our rose bed, helping with the wildlife area around the pond, weeding, pruning and watering are all things you could be doing. 

You don’t have to be an expert gardener - just keen and willing.
