Our new remembrance garden

Thanks to your support we have been able to create a new Remembrance GardenDSC00745-Web.jpg behind the Kendrick Wing at Warrington Hospital.

We provided funding for the design, creation and construction of the garden which is available to staff , patients, their families and members of the public who wish to take a moment to reflect.  

Helen Higginson, Head of Fundraising said: “I think it’s really important place for staff or families who’ve lost a patient or a loved one. Having somewhere to come and just remember and take time out. You sometimes need somewhere peaceful to have a bit of quiet reflection.”
