TUI Group volunteers fly in to help spruce up garden at the L&D

July 2017

A team of volunteers from the travel group TUI, based in Luton, visited the L&D on Friday 7 July to help spruce up a garden area at the hospital used by parents of babies in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

The group, two of whom flew in especially from Stockholm and the Netherlands, helped transform a tired outside space into a lovely garden for parents to enjoy for relaxation away from the busy atmosphere and stresses of hospital life.

The garden belongs to the NICU bungalow accommodation which was opened last year thanks to a huge fundraising effort. It is there for parents of children being cared for in our NICU so that they can be close to their children in the unit.

Karen Bush, Voluntary Services Manager, said: “We are extremely grateful to the TUI volunteers who have done a fantastic job with the garden. They worked really hard all to transform the space into somewhere where parents can unwind and relax, and we really appreciate their support.”
