Milton Keynes Hospital’s cardiology department garden has been shortlisted for an award as MK’s favourite community project.
Gaynor Hancock, the Cardiology receptionist, started the garden herself and has developed and maintained it – mostly out of her own pocket – so that patients and staff can enjoy a calm, pleasant environment while waiting for appointments, visiting or just taking some lunch.
The Hospital says that Gaynor spends some weekends and even annual leave to pop to the garden to work on it.
Now, Gaynor’s efforts have been recognised as the garden has been shortlisted by staff working at the local Dobbies store as part of their ‘Helping Your community Grow’ competition.
Voting is now open and the Trust is encouraging everyone to go online and support Gaynor for her efforts by voting for the Cardiology garden to be the winner of the competition by clicking here.
