‘It’s a perfect partnership’ 25 years with Hospice UK
2021 is a special year for three of our main beneficiaries as we celebrate 25 years of partnership with Carers Trust, Marie Curie and Hospice UK. Here, Hospice UK CEO, Tracey Bleakley, explains the importance of that support.
“Support from the National Garden Scheme enables Hospice UK to champion over 200 hospices in the UK, who care for 225,000 people every year. And, in this special 25th anniversary year, we wanted to share the impact our partnership has on thousands of people like Ruby and her family shown in this short film.”
“In addition to the funding received, Hospice UK encourages its own hospice gardens to open for the National Garden Scheme providing an open door to local communities and helping to raise awareness and funds for their important work.
“Inviting the public to visit our hospice gardens is a wonderful way to share our work with a wider audience and to share the benefits of these beautiful spaces with others. It’s a perfect partnership. The £6.4 million we’ve received from the National Garden Scheme and the long-term commitment has underpinned the support we’ve been able to provide to the whole hospice sector. Funding from the National Garden Scheme has also supported a bursary programme for hospices, and our annual awards ceremony which celebrates the achievements of our hospice staff and volunteers. In addition, National Garden Scheme gardens provide a wonderful space for our beneficiaries, staff and supporters to relax, learn and unwind.
“From everyone at Hospice UK, thank you all so much for your incredible support.”
