Cambrian Rotary and Friends of Rotary spent some time in the Hope House Children’s Hospice’s Snowflake Garden, weeding and generally giving the beds a good tidying up.

Hope House Children’s Hospices are here to make sure that no one faces the death of their child alone.

They support more than 750 local families who are either caring for a terminally ill child, or whose child has died.

The Snowflake Garden is used by families when they are staying with their child after they have died in the hospice. The garden is a place of peace and a private area where the parents can take their time with their own thoughts.

President Robin Brown said, “It’s a privilege to help keep this special garden looking tidy for those families at a very difficult and sad time”.

Cambrian are regulars at this wonderful place helping in the gardens.

If you are considering volunteer work in the community then Oswestry Cambrian club is ready to welcome men and women of 18+ from all walks of life in the local community as Rotarians or as Friends of Rotary. We are a very relaxed style of “new Rotary”, never short of projects of all sorts and a club of Community Action in Oswestry so come and join us and get “involved”.

We would normally meet informally at The Wynnstay Hotel, Church Street, Oswestry on Thursday evenings and will be again when regulations and guidelines allow.

For more information please come along to hear what our new style of Rotary has to offer or contact Mike Lade on 01691 570917
