Top tech company help transform community cancer garden

CANCER patients are set to benefit from a new hospital community garden – after a company volunteered to renovate an open space.

Members of the invoice finance team at Siemens Financial Services have transformed an unused area at the University Hospital of North Tees.

This is after linking up with the Trust’s cancer information centre who wanted to create a green space for patients.

The team from Siemens Financial Services were eager to help, funding for garden equipment and decorations and giving up their time to renovate the space.

Alan Chandler, Macmillan information and survivorship manager, said: “When the team contacted us to ask if we needed any help and what they could do, we knew this was the perfect project.

“For some time now we have wanted to create a garden area in a quiet peaceful area of the hospital grounds for cancer patients to use.

“The whole team have done an incredible job. They worked hard all day with dedication and enthusiasm – I’d like to thank them all for doing something which will be of real benefit to patient care.”

Pulin Trivedi, from Siemens Financial Services, said: “We regularly carry out community projects – Siemens as a company want to make a real difference.

“It’s fantastic to know we have been a part of something which will of direct benefit to patients.

“I’d like to thank Alan and the whole cancer information centre team for all of their input in helping us make a real difference.”
