Community nursing charity to gain extra garden funding

  • 1 Comment

The Queen’s Nursing Institute is to benefit from extra funding this year from a scheme that sees people open their gardens for charity.

The National Garden Scheme, which is already a key supporter, announced it would be giving £375,000 to the QNI in 2017, as the nursing charity celebrates its 130th anniversary.

“I would like to thank every single garden owner”

It represents an extra £125,000 over and above the £250,000 annual funding the nursing charity has received from the scheme during each of the past few years.

The money was raised by people who opened their private gardens last year helping generate about £3.5m in total for a range of nursing and care charities, including the QNI, Macmillan Cancer Support and Marie Curie.

The National Garden Scheme is already the biggest single funder of the QNI, supporting all of the nursing charity’s key activities, including its network of Queen’s nurses with more than 1,000 working in a variety of community nursing specialities across the UK.

A spokesman for the QNI said some of the extra cash would be used to support a leadership scheme for Queen’s nurses announced earlier this year.

The QNI has been associated with the garden scheme since it was first founded and will be helping it to celebrate its own landmark birthday this year.

To mark the scheme’s 90th anniversary, 90 Queen’s nurses will visit the normally private royal garden at Frogmore House near Windsor Castle when it opens its gates for the garden scheme in June this year.

QNI chief executive Dr Crystal Oldman said the organisation was “delighted” to get the extra support from the garden scheme in 2017.

“To enable people to live safe, comfortable and independent lives at home, they often need the support of skilled community nurses,” she said.

“The support we receive from the National Garden Scheme is absolutely vital to every area of our work,” she said.

She added: “I would like to thank every single garden owner, whose hard work helps us to improve care for so many of the most vulnerable people in society.”
