The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House is currently in the middle of expanding its patient kitchen garden to enhance the gardening therapy programme.

Dobbies, in Lynn, donated £1,000 towards the project, while an extra-large wheelchair-friendly greenhouse has just been put up by supporters of the hospice and engineers from RAF Marham.

The labour of the paths were donated by Martin Bacon Plant Hire, and Phobbies, a charity who provide creative activities to disabled people, will be making raised beds so all abilities have full access to the garden.

Mark Shea, commercial cirector at the Norfolk Hospice said: “I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported this project, especially to Dobbies for their help.”

“If any local companies would like to partner with us, please call the fundraising office on 01485 601701.”
