Summary

The hospice’s grounds need enthusiastic gardeners to keep them looking welcoming for patients and visitors.

Detailed description

The hospice provides a welcoming haven for patients, visitors and wildlife.

Our volunteer gardeners look after the courtyard garden, a wild flower meadow, a natural pond and our kitchen garden - and they need more help now and throughout the year.

Can you spare a couple of hours a week to help keep our beautiful gardens looking their best? You'd be one of a small team of volunteers who gather on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays to carry out seasonal tasks in the gardens and grounds - or you can pick a time and day that suits you. Looking after our rose bed, helping with the wildlife area around the pond, weeding, pruning and watering are all things you could be doing. 

You don’t have to be an expert gardener - just keen and willing.

About The Norfolk Hospice Tapping House

The Norfolk Hospice is committed to providing outstanding care for people in the local community living with life-shortening illnesses and to their carers, family and friends including bereavement support.
The support provided is tailored to the individual, encompassing their physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs in an understanding, caring and compassionate way, ensuring dignity is maintained throughout.
Care is delivered at the hospice in Hillington, either in the Inpatient Unit, Day Therapy Unit or via one-to-one sessions at the hospice. Care is sometimes provided in people’s own homes.
The current services cost over £2.5 million per year to run; the NHS funds only 32% of this, with the majority coming from the support of local groups, businesses and individuals.
