Together we can make life-saving projects happen sooner for our staff and patients

The Loft Garden

Since the outbreak of Covid-19 many of CWPT’s patients have been unable to participate in their therapy groups at the Loft. When we are able to welcome them back, we would love to provide them with a dedicated therapeutic area.  Loft garden potential

The Loft Garden is in desperate need of time, love and attention to transform it into a calming space. Once completed, the garden will be used to inspire and encourage patients to spend time in the outside space improving their health and mental well-being. 

With your help and kind generosity we will transform the site into a therapeutic garden where patients can enjoy new experiences, appreciate the attractive surroundings, improve their well-being and, in time, attend their groups again. Vist the JustGiving page to donate to this worthy cause.
