The Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre in Wisbech, will soon be benefitting from the fundraising efforts of Wisbech Grammar School 6th Form Pupils, to create a sensory garden. They began their fundraising efforts by making and selling pancakes to pupils, tempting them with an array of toppings available, and raising an incredible £207.
With more fundraising activities in the pipeline, pupils are hoping to reach their target of £500, which is the amount needed to fund the water feature. They also have plans in place to regenerate the current garden and incorporate seating areas, sensory plants, raised beds for patients to tend, and shaded areas for walking. The more money the pupils raise, the more they can do in the garden to make it a serene, beautiful space for visitors.
Phillipaa Ashcroft, Project Development Officer for the Alan Hudson Day Treatment Centre said ‘we are very grateful for the schools support in helping us to create a sensory garden for people with a life-limiting condition who live in the Fens. The pupils help in securing/growing plants, and in raising funds for a water feature is very much appreciated’.
