“The public will be able to see and enjoy our grounds and it should be a lovely, fun occasion” – the public are invited to a summer garden day at Milton

Visitors have the chance to enjoy the tranquil grounds of a leading children’s hospice.

East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH) is hosting a summer open garden day at Milton.

It is taking place between 11am and 3pm on Sunday, 4th June and entry costs £2 (children are free).

There will be refreshments, stalls and fun for all the family, as well as giving people an insight into life at Milton.

They will have the chance to ask questions and learn more about the work of EACH.

“We can’t wait to welcome the public to our beautiful hospice,” said EACH Community Fundraiser Helena Davis.

“It’s a very tranquil place and this is an opportunity to showcase it, as well as raising awareness and perhaps changing perceptions.

“Although the public won’t have access to the care floor, they’ll be able to see and enjoy our grounds and it should be a lovely, fun occasion.”

To find out more, email community@each.org.uk

Visitors can park at Milton Hall (CB24 6DD).

Meanwhile, EACH is on the lookout for extra volunteers, including people to help its Facilities team at Milton.

Extra pairs of hands are needed to help with maintenance, including portable appliance testing and looking after pool vehicles.

Additional help is also needed for EACH’s Help at Home service.

This entails going into a family’s home and providing vital practical support with things like gardening, decorating or any other tasks that need doing.

The team are always keen to hear from more interested volunteers.

For more information, head to each.org.uk/get-involved/volunteering, email volunteerservices@each.org.uk or call 01223 800800 (select option four).
