Community engagement day with Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice

The M&E tunnelling team put on their gardening gloves and spent the day at Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice (GBCH).

GBCH staff and volunteers care for adult patients with a wide variety of chronic and terminal conditions. Most patients also have informal carers, all of whom can also access support to enable them to care for their loved ones.

Last year GBCH cared for over 2,500 patients and families and were supported by many more members of the community through donations, legacies, trusts and at their many fundraising events.

GBCH strongly acknowledge the benefits of regular exercise and the natural environment to their patients. Earlier this year the hospice started creating an organic path through their large woodland ground for the residence to enjoy.

With great success ATC staff were able to significantly extend the path using naturally fallen branches as path barriers and blending the path into the woodlands using a total of 11 tonnes of bark.

The team worked all day levelling, raking and shifting bark to ensure a quality end product for all residence of the hospice.
