Volunteer to help us maintain our beautiful gardens

Our patients and their visitors find it peaceful and tranquil to be able to look out at our beautiful gardens or take a walk in the grounds.

Are you interested in gardening or have some knowledge of plants? Are you physically fit and flexible to work in variable weather conditions for a few hours a week or more? If so, please register to join our grounds team. Tasks may include weeding, pruning, planting, watering and tidying.

Hours available

A few hours a week would be perfect, on weekdays between 10am and 4pm. We’l make sure you get a cuppa and refreshments too!
