Harefield Hospital 'really grateful' for St Martin’s School pupils' fundraising efforts
A Northwood school has raised thousands of pounds for a hospital garden.
St Martin’s School, in Moor Park Road, raised £12,600 for Harefield Hospital through activities such as Christmas collections, a general knowledge quiz, a cake sale, obstacle races and talent competitions.
The money was put towards creating a healing garden for the Acorn and Oak wards at the Hill End Road hospital.
On October 8, the school’s charity co-ordinator, Gill Buckley, and headmaster, David Tidmarsh, visited the St Martin's Garden with pupils to present the cheque and plant daffodil and crocus bulbs ready for the spring.
Mr Tidmarsh said: "The boys have enjoyed taking part in the many fund-raising events, knowing that it was all in aid of a good cause. "We are thrilled that we have been able to help Harefield Hospital and add a much-needed area for patients, their visitors and the staff. We hope that they can enjoy it all year round, and see the many changes that will take place each season."
Nick Hunt, Director of Harefield Hospital, said: "Funding from St Martin’s School has enabled us to transform a previously neglected space into a beautiful garden that can be appreciated by the hospital’s patients, staff and visitors alike. We are really grateful to the boys of St Martin’s for their generous support and hard work in fundraising for us".
