Invista Move Mountains in Hospice Grounds

On Friday, 15th March the Invista volunteer team turned out in force with tools in hand to help tidy up the hospice gardens in preparation for new spring growth. There was much work to be done and despite the freezing conditions the 12 strong team got busy, scraping, sweeping and clearing.
Their hard work is evident everywhere and now our gardens are primed for spring – all we need now is some spring weather!
We are grateful to the Invista volunteer team who give up their time to help our regular volunteer team with the mammoth task of maintaining our beautiful gardens. These gardens are a very important feature of Foyle Hospice bringing much comfort to patients and their families.
