Beautiful gardens have been created in the grounds of Falkirk Community Hospital thanks to a generous donation from the Royal Voluntary Service (formerly known as WRVS).
NHS Forth Valley received the biggest ever single donation from an individual charity – £175,000 – from the Royal Voluntary Service in March 2012. The money was raised by through a variety of local projects including the proceeds from their cafes in Stirling and Falkirk Community hospitals.
Some of this funding has now been used to create new gardens at Falkirk Community Hospital. A new sensory garden has been created in an inner courtyard area, which can be accessed by patients in the four inpatient wards and a separate landscaped garden has also be developed in the area outside the day hospital.
