Greenfingers has just finished garden number 35!

Greenfingers is a small national charity which is supported by the gardening and horticultural industries, and is dedicated to creating magical gardens at children’s hospices around the UK.

Now in its 12th year, Greenfingers has just finished garden number 35 and has identified many more children’s hospices that need our help over the coming months and years.

Greenfingers gardens are very special to children and their families because they make a real difference to the quality of their lives.

Our gardens mean that children can spend more time together with their family outside, benefiting from the therapeutic elements of nature, at play, or in the calm privacy surrounded by nature and above all – away from the bedside and medical environment.

All the Greenfingers gardens are built according to the specific need of each individual hospice taking into account the children and families they support.

Every year our 35 magical gardens give benefit to at least 200 children and families.

The gardens range from family gardens, play gardens, sensory and reflective gardens right through to remembrance gardens – they are all unique – as are the children who enjoy and benefit from them.

Each Greenfingers garden is special because every day is so precious for children in hospices.

Any company, whether manufacturer, retailer or any other business who would like to help us in raising money to create more gardens to help more children in hospices, we would really like to talk to you. Please contact us on 01494 674749 or email to info@greenfingerscharity.org.uk
