Greenfingers Charity announced as official Charity for the Miss Earth UK National Final on Saturday
Official Announcement: We are extremely proud to announce the chosen charity for the Miss Earth UK National Final on Saturday 25th August 2018 held in Birmingham, England will be the Greenfingers Charity. The national charity is dedicated to supporting children who spend time in hospices around the UK, along with their families, by creating inspiring gardens for them to relax in and benefit from. We create beautiful, well-designed outdoor spaces for children to enjoy with their family, friends and siblings, whether through play and fun, or therapeutic rest and relaxation.
Greenfingers Charity is driven by the belief that time spent outdoors, away from the bedside, can offer children and families under considerable stress a vital opportunity to embrace the benefits of being in the fresh air and engaging with the natural environment. We are committed to creating specially designed, stimulating garden spaces that can bring many benefits to children with life-limiting conditions. Whilst many people may take for granted the simple pleasure of being able to enjoy a garden, for these children, their siblings and their families, the chance to spend time together outdoors and away from the bedside is precious.
54 GREENFINGERS CHARITY GARDENS To date, they have created 54 inspiring hospice gardens around the country. With a further waiting list of hospices that need our help now, which the Miss Earth UK competition helps to do just that.
