Wexham Park Hospital secures funding for patient sanctuary garden




Wexham Park Hospital secures funding for patient sanctuary garden

A beautiful garden space for cancer and stroke patients is being created next to the Eden Ward at Wexham Park Hospital, part of Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust.

The project has been made possible by securing financial support outside of NHS funding - Shurtape UK, the global tape manufacturer, has provided £7,500.00 toward the building project. The company has also made a financial commitment of £1000.00 towards the ongoing maintenance costs of the garden.

NHS Complementary Therapist Michele Martin of Wexham Park Hospital has driven the project to help support patients during their hospital stay. Shurtape agreed to get involved after its MD, Colin Gadd, met Michele through their business network.

Colin and his team pledged financial and marketing support to help fund the creation of the patient sanctuary in an emotional meeting, which was filmed as part of BBC One’s “One Day That Changed My Life” and aired on the BBC today at the start of the month.

The crew of the factual daytime programme followed Michele and her colleagues on their journey as they first welcomed Colin to the hospital, then went to meet him to at Shurtape’s Hemel Hempstead offices to discuss their potential partnership. 

Says Michele: “We are just so grateful for Shurtape’s generous contribution. We forgot the cameras were there most of the time, as we got so involved in our discussions about how the patients would benefit and how Shurtape could help.” 

Colin adds: “This is a cause close to hearts of many of our team and customers, lots of whom live close to the hospital. We had been looking for the right charity partner for the business and Michele’s passion for her patients’ care won us over.  We’ll provide the initial cash sum of £7,500 and also commit to fundraising and marketing activities across the business, to support and help the hospital as it builds its new centre.”

The centre will be officially opened in September.
