The National Garden Scheme and Marie Curie
For 26 years, Marie Curie and the National Garden Scheme have worked in partnership to raise a phenomenal £10 million, helping to fund over 500,000 hours of vital nursing care. Thanks to dedicated National Garden Scheme volunteers and Marie Curie Hospices opening their gardens, we have helped support hundreds of thousands of families through one of the most difficult times a family can face. Our partnership has raised awareness of the benefits of gardening to health and wellbeing and made sure Marie Curie Nurses can be there when they are needed most.
Beyond financial support, the NGS are also dedicated to supporting nursing development and retention. In the past few years, they have supported 26 Marie Curie frontline staff through additional training and are now funding a breakthrough new programme training and developing future generations of Nursing leaders. In doing this, the NGS not only invest in Marie Curie’s present, but also in our future. “The long-term support of the National Garden Scheme has been fundamental to our operations over the last 26 years, and we’re proud to have a partner like them by our side throughout the changing times.” Marie Curie CEO, Matthew Reed
