Enjoy a virtual open garden tour with Rennie Grove Hospice Care
and live on Freeview channel 276
Rennie Grove Hospice Care has teamed up with some of the region’s leading gardeners to provide virtual open garden tours.
The hospice usually organise open days in their gardens, but this year the open days were put on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic.
This year, to keep everyone safe, some of the finest gardeners have come together to film their havens for you to look round in your own time, and from the comfort of your own home.
The garden videos on Rennie Grove’s webpage are being updated throughout July and August so there will always be a wide variety to catch the eye.
Tracey Hancock, Rennie Grove's director of fundraising, said: "Usually our open garden days would raise much needed funding for our work.
"This year, because of the COVID restrictions, visits have been put on hold, so we came up with this idea to open these beautiful gardens up to everyone to view from the safety of their own homes.
"You can enjoy the videos on a dedicated page on our website and then, we’d be really grateful if you could make a donation, as you might have done while visiting the gardens themselves.
"Your donations will help to ensure our nurses can carry on caring for patients and supporting families throughout our local community. Thank you."
During the lockdown, Rennie Grove’s hospice at home nurses have been caring for more patients than ever - up to 600 at times – and desperately need support to continue this invaluable work.
Rennie Grove has been working with several businesses across Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire, and they be delivering cream teas for people to enjoy while they watch the videos, donating a percentage of the price to Rennie Grove.
Isalie in Tring will be donating 20 per cent of cream tea sales to Rennie Grove.
