Hospital garden receives funding boost

Plans for The Serenity Garden, a specially designed stroke rehabilitation and dementia therapy garden at the George Eliot Hospital, are one step closer to reality after an £80,000 grant from the hospital‘s general charity.

The funding, taken from the general donations made to the hospital, will enable the completion of the first phase of the groundworks including demolition of the existing site, laying of the foundations for the lodge, completing the building of the stroke rehabilitation area, installation of fencing, gates and decking areas and the laying of the specialist flooring and pathways.

George Eliot Hospital’s Managing Director David Eltringham said: “We are absolutely delighted that the Charitable Funds Committee has approved the fundraising bid: it means that we can move the project forward at a faster pace.

We are very grateful for the support we have received so far. Our fundraising efforts will continue with the welcome support from the Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth who has nominated us as her nominated charity for the coming civic year.”

The Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, Cllr June Tandy added: “This is fantastic news and gives me even greater ambition to support the second phase of the project  which will cover the costs of installing new lighting, rehabilitation equipment, the all-weather lodge, furnishings, plants and gardening equipment. This is a brilliant project and I look forward to seeing this vision become a reality.”
