Hospital charity, Dreamdrops has received a donation that will enable it to revamp the sensory garden and play area at Hinchingbrooke Hospital’s children’s unit.
Each year, St Ives firm Pope Woodhead and Associates, part of the Huron consulting group, runs a programme called ‘Helping Hands’ with each office choosing a charity to donate their time to.
Louise Jones, operations co-ordinator, and Cherre Northfield, project co-ordinator, said: “The money enabled us to buy new plants, herbs, top soil, paint, cleaning materials, tactile tiles, a bird camera, table, new butterflies and ladybirds for the sensory garden and play area.
“Our office in St Ives was excited to be involved and to help Dreamdrops tidy up the garden for the children and their relatives to use. It was our opportunity as a company to connect and give back to the local community.”
Anne-Marie Hamilton, chairman of Dreamdrops, said: “The work the Helping Hands team have done in the sensory garden has transformed the area into a lovely space for children and parent’s to spend time in when staying on the unit.
