Greenfingers appeal for children's hospice gardens is "halfway there"

Greenfingers has reported the charity is now approaching the half way point of its £750,000 ‘Rosy Cheeks’ appeal, which aims to raise enough money to create at least ten more children’s hospice gardens. 

This year, under the umbrella of the ‘Rosy Cheeks’ appeal, Greenfingers will create gardens at Chestnut Tree House children’s hospice in Sussex, Little Haven’s children’s hospice in Essex and Forget Me Not children’s hospice in Yorkshire.

The 'Rosy Cheeks’ Appeal aims to raise £750,000 over the next two years to build at least 10  new gardens in children’s hospices around the country.   

There are also plans for a small Sheltered Garden for young people and families in a hospice in Kent.

Meanwhile, actors Jim Carter and Imelda Staunton have become joint patrons of Greenfingers.
