Opening of The Ivy Remembrance Garden
The garden is situated within the grounds of the Princess Elizabeth Hospital on the corner of Rue Mignot and Rue Rondel. The garden is dedicated to the remembrance of all babies and children gone too soon and all bereaved parents are welcome to visit the garden. We hope it will also be used by anyone seeking a quiet place for peaceful reflection. The trustees are grateful to the following local suppliers who donated the materials- Guernsey Gardens, Le Friquet Garden Centre, CP Plant Hire, Ronez, Capelles Building Stores, Norman Piette, B & Q, R.H. Gaudion, Flexi Solutions, Dell Landscapes, Tree Care and Nick Russell.
Thanks also to the Access Youth Team from the College of Further Education and the States Works CEPS Team and other volunteers for their help.
We are delighted that the Guernsey office of BNP Parisbas have chosen The Ivy Trust as their charity for 2016 and we look forward to working with them during the year.
We were delighted to be chosen by Simon and James along with the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation as the charities to benefit from their world record ROW24 event. Over £8,000 was raised and we are extremely grateful to everyone who made this possible.
