In November 2023 the National Garden Scheme made a one-off donation of £40,660 to Sue Ryder to support an exciting project in the hospice gardens at Sue Ryder Leckhampton Court Hospice, Cheltenham. National Garden Scheme funding will bring to life a series of pro bono designs created for the hospice, by RHS award winning designer, Peter Dowle. Peter’s plans will transform several areas of the hospice grounds, ensuring there is endless, beautiful space for Sue Ryder’s patients, their family and friends, and staff and volunteers, to enjoy and reflect. For patients and their families, hospice grounds often become a place where fond and enduring memories can be made, and where loved ones can be remembered.
The project aims to enhance the hospice environment for everyone that uses it and will provide the local community with the opportunity to visit the grounds and learn about the vital support that Sue Ryder provides.
The garden at Leckhampton Court opens for the National Garden Scheme on 23 June 2024 – for more details click here.
