Greenfingers garden opens in Oxford
Children’s hospice gets multi-coloured outdoor space
The latest garden from Greenfingers, the charity that creates outdoor spaces for children’s hospices, was opened by the charity’s Patron, Ann-Marie Powell MSGD, at Helen & Douglas House in Oxford.
The new Kaleidoscope Garden was designed by Nicola Wakefield, who won the KLC School of Design competition run by Greenfingers, and it was opened in front of hospice staff and patients, supporters and a party of children from Beachborough Prep School in Northampton, who helped to raise funds for the garden.
Wakefield’s design includes a structure made from wood and multi-coloured polycarbonate panels, which floods the garden with a myriad of hues.
Ann-Marie said: “I know only too well the real difference outdoor spaces mean to families who are facing a difficult hospice journey.”
