Rolawn donates to Children's Hospice

In association with the Greenfinger's Charity, turf grower Rolawn has donated some of its Medallion turf and Turf & Lawn Seeding topsoil to the Acorns Children's Hospice, in Selly Oak, Birmingham.

The hospice garden has been transformed into two areas: a family garden featuring a play area and water feature, and a sensory garden which will be used as a place of calm and remembrance.

Acorns’ volunteer manager Dee McCann said:  "The new garden would not have been possible without generous donations from supporters such as Rolawn.

"It is a fantastic addition to the hospice that will make a huge difference to our children and their families."

The hospice currently cares for over 600 life limited and life threatened children and young people and their families in the region.
