St Ann's Hospice IGT ESV Day

Thanks to enthusiastic employees from IGT, the gardens and children’s play area at St. Ann’s Hospice were given a makeover.

On Wednesday 19th August 2015 the team worked tirelessly weeding, clearing and pruning three garden areas. They also did a great job of sanding and painting benches that were in need of restoring.

After a sunny start to the day, the afternoon brought rain showers however, far from dampening the team spirit everyone carried on determined to see the tasks completed.

The gardens are an important feature of Hospices, providing a comforting, tranquil and reflective space used by patients, families, staff and visitors. After a hard day’s work the team left with the satisfaction that their time had made a great difference to this charity and their help was very much appreciated.

Alison Gilbody, Director of Income Generation and Communication at St Ann’s said: 

“We’re so grateful to the volunteers for the brilliant work they have done in the garden. They’ve done a brilliant job and it really will make a huge difference to our patients and their families and loved ones."

“As a charity we simply couldn’t operate without the kind support of volunteers like the ones from IGT – they save us hundreds of thousands of pounds every year in staff costs and we couldn’t afford to continue running the hospice without them. A huge thank you from everyone at St Ann’s."
