Cheers for Churchill Unit garden volunteers

The garden was tired and overgrown until the youngsters got their hands on it. They raised nearly £400 to replace dead greenery, paint planters and install wooden fencing. They spent days of hard work digging and weeding to create a garden that patients and staff can enjoy and be proud of.

 

Adam Foley, 22, from Farnworth, said: “I lost my mum and grandad to cancer so it has been nice to give something back, so they’ve got something nice to look at.”

 

Liam Myers, 21, from Deane, said: “We hope this has shown a different side to young people and proved that we’re not all disrespectful thugs! It’s all been for a good cause, and it’s now a much tidier and cleaner view for patients to see.”

 

Officially handing over the updated garden to the hospital, Jessica Browning from the Prince’s Trust told the volunteers that they had left a legacy for others to follow.
