Why gardens matter to Maggie’s centres

One of our Gardens and Health beneficiaries is Maggie’s. Built alongside NHS hospitals, their centres are uplifting places with professional staff on hand to offer the support people with cancer and their families need. They combine iconic architecture with gorgeous gardens.

Maggie’s Chief Executive, Dame Laura Lee talks about why gardens are so important to their centres and the impact they have on people with cancer.

“We’re so grateful to the National Garden Scheme for their support funding our green spaces over the years,” she says.

A selection of Maggie’s gardens open for the National Garden Scheme each year, giving you the chance to experience the beautiful design and sense of peacefulness they create.
