Harold G Walker Helps Forest Holme Hospice Repair Vandalised Sunflower Garden
Harold G Walker Solicitors have paid to repair the vandalised memorial garden in Poole Park, preventing financial loss to a Dorset hospice charity. The Sunflower Garden unveiled earlier this month aimed to raise funds and awareness for the 1,000 patients cared for by Forest Holme Hospice each year. Only days after being opened to the public several of the garden’s handmade ceramic Sunflowers were vandalised resulting in £300 worth of damage.
Nicola Lowe, Managing Partner said “Forest Holme Hospice has provided outstanding care for relatives of our staff and so this is a cause we are delighted to support. We were saddened to learn of the heartless act of vandalism to the Sunflower Garden and only too happy to help support the fundraising project in repairing the damage.”
“This was a terrible incident which is not only upsetting for those who have dedicated a flower to a loved one, but also those who have worked tirelessly to help create the garden”, comments Becky Chalk, Forest Holme Hospice Fundraiser. “We are truly grateful to Harold G Walker Solicitors for coming to our rescue with their generous donation. The support from the local community has been over whelming- proving something good can come out of any bad situation”.
