Leicestershire Nurseries donates plants to Rainbows

The gardens at Rainbows are set to bloom this summer thanks to a generous donation of plants from Derrys Nurseries.

The family run Cossington business has donated around £200 worth of plants to our hospice, which will be enjoyed by families, staff and volunteers.

Co-owner of Derrys Nurseries Ash Dayman said: “I was sitting in my garden looking at social media when I saw a story about Rainbows nurses. I thought, wouldn’t it be nice if I could give a bit of colour to the hospice and make it a brighter place than it already is.

“There is something about seeing colourful flowers and plants that makes everyone feel better and it is always great to support such a wonderful charity that does so much for so many people.”

In the past, Ash has helped to create our Sensory Garden and Chelsea Garden with his brother, Ady Dayman, who is also one of our Patrons.

Antony Foster, Rainbows Estates, Facilities and Safety Manager, added: “We would like to thank Derrys Nurseries for this wonderful donation of beautiful plants. Our team of volunteer gardeners have planted them all over the gardens at Rainbows and we look forward to seeing them bloom.”
