Central team unveils sensory garden at Birmingham Hospice
02 October 2023
A Birmingham-based hospice has revealed its revamped outdoor space, thanks to a volunteering day held by the team at Central, which involved creating a sensory garden in the hospice’s grounds.
Members of the Birmingham-based team volunteered their time to sprucing up the area at the hospice’s Erdington site. Birmingham Hospice works towards its vision of a future where everyone with a life-limiting illness will live and die with dignity and in comfort, enabling more people from all communities to access the care of their choice at the end of life.
The unveiling - by Managing Director, Neil Williams - follows the volunteering day held earlier in the month, as well as a £6,000 donation made to the hospice in May this year as part of our Community Champions scheme.
Luke Manley, Senior Community and Business Development Fundraiser at Birmingham Hospice, said: “We are so thankful to our green fingered friends at Persimmon Homes Central for their continued support of Birmingham Hospice. They went above and beyond and ensured our terminally ill patients; their families and hospice teams can now enjoy making moments matter surround by a beautiful new sensory garden. We have been so lucky to have the support of Persimmon Homes and cannot thank them enough.”
Neil Williams, Managing Director at Persimmon Homes Central, said: “What we do is about so much more than building quality homes; it’s also about supporting the communities in which we build in a number of ways.
“At Persimmon, we encourage our team to volunteer their time to causes close to their hearts and it’s great to be able to unveil the new sensory garden at Birmingham Hospice, helping to create a welcoming environment in their open spaces and celebrate the team’s hard work bringing the area to life.”
