Kilbryde Hospice were delighted to welcome an £18,000 grant from the Morrisons Foundation and Morrisons Stewartfield to be used for the development of a sensory garden on the grounds of the hospice. A sensory garden will provide a wide range of benefits to users of Kilbryde Hospice services and the donation from the Morrisons Foundation will provide a huge boost in allowing them to do this.

Gordon McHugh, Kilbryde Hospice Chief Executive commented “Kilbryde Hospice are incredibly grateful for the £18,000 grant offered by the Morrisons Foundation for the provision of a sensory garden for our patients and their families to enjoy. The grant will go towards the redesign of our gardens to provide a safe, therapeutic place for patients and visitors to spend quality time, whilst benefiting from the stimulation and exploration of their senses. The development of a sensory garden at the hospice will offer a pleasant experience and provide welcome comfort when patients and their loved ones need it most.”
