Pupils and staff from INSPIRE at Penketh High School have been volunteering at Charlie’s Garden at St Rocco’s Hospice. The garden is run by volunteer patients, carers and relatives with links to the hospice. As part of the volunteering project pupils raised at the school Christmas Fayre to help support the gardening project.
Miss Woodward: “The garden is a great place where volunteers come together and support each other with how cancer is or has affected their lives. Pupils have really enjoyed helping in the garden and are keen to further develop links with the hospice and create enterprise opportunities to raise more funds for the project”
Kaden in year 9 said: “I really like working in the garden. It is calm and quiet and I like to help with the heavy lifting. I am glad that we got some money to give them because they do a good job and it is really nice that they help each other”
