Just had some lovely feedback which I received today from Barry at Dr Kershaw’s Hospice…
Just a few words to say what a great job your Prince’s Trust volunteers have done at the Hospice over the past couple of weeks.
They were brilliantly led by Adam and his colleagues and completed each project/task with enthusiasm. Their tasks included re-staining our shed, raised beds and benches with a fair amount of prep work first. This included clearing the beds of flowers and plants, which drew their comment of ‘it’s the first job we’ve done that looks worse when we’ve finished than when we started’. I understand what that meant, but now the beds are ready for day patients to set vegetable seeds and plants in.
They also cleared and weeded block paving and other paths, which has made a noticeable difference to our Sensory Garden, regularly enjoyed by patients.
Another area they have made a big difference to is our new Memory Garden. This is currently being developed and they have given it a really good start by bedding memory stones into a prepared bank ready for the planting to be done.
The team seemed to have enjoyed every minute with us. They were always polite, responsive and willing. A real credit to Groundwork and themselves. I hope, and believe, they got as much from the experience as we did from their efforts.
I wish them all well for the future and thank them for choosing Dr Kershaw’s Hospice as the beneficiary of the Prince’s Trust team’s project.
