St Helena Hospice applied to CRASH for assistance restoring the terrace area and paved walkways outside their in-patient unit that had fallen into disrepair so that their idyllic grounds could continue to be enjoyed by the patients, family and friends of the people they care for at this difficult time in their lives.
CRASH called upon Patron companies to create a safe, calm and welcoming area for patients to safely access fresh air and enjoy the beautiful gardens.
Arcadis, Argent, and Maylim provided the professional expertise to design and specify to the project.
Fellow Patrons Forterra, ACO, A-Plant and Buildbase donated bricks, galvanized grates and channels, fencing and other essential building materials.
CRASH supporters Townsend Architects and Marshalls also assisted the project in terms of professional advice and building materials respectively.
CRASH awarded the St Helena Hospice a cash grant of £20,000 bringing the total value of support given to £29,616.
Speaking at the official opening of the terrace, St Helena Hospice Chief Executive Mark Jarman-Howe said: “It’s great to have the support of CRASH to transform the terrace. It’s made a massive difference to an area that is used by 300 patients and their families each year.”
