Derian House opened up its gardens giving the public the rare opportunity to visit the vibrant outdoor spaces as part of the National Garden Scheme.
Families and supporters set sail for the pirate-themed event in April that offered homemade treats and cakes plus the chance to speak to volunteers and even meet Tallulah, the charity’s Pets as Therapy dog.
There was plenty to see and do for all the family, including giant bubble art, special performances from Leyland Morris Men, and a scavenger hunt in the hospice grounds.
Visitors also had the chance to see the new woodland counselling pod, as well as the freshly painted seaside garden, the smile park playground, the sensory garden, and the newly-added infinity pool water feature within the reflection area.
The hospice will next open up its gardens in July for a festival-themed event. Buy your tickets here.
