Sponsor a plant in the Transplant Unit Garden

Still looking for a Christmas present? Sponsor a plant in the Transplant Unit Garden at Harefield Hospital for £10!

Work is already underway, and the Transplant Garden is currently being created on the grounds of Harefield Hospital. A place for patients, who are unable to walk to the benches and cafes on sTransplant Garden Rev Aite, can spend time with their visitors, breathe the fresh air and enjoy the plants, birds and butterflies in the garden that offers accessibility as well as privacy.

The Transplant Garden is currently being built opposite the Gatehouse (on the left-hand side as you drive in from the main entrance) with direct accessibility from Rowan Ward where patients will be wheeled out in their beds or wheelchairs onto a decking. This will enable more patients to escape the wards for a short time and enjoy and enjoy the beautiful garden with their visitors or staff.

Helen Doyle, matron of the Transplant Unit at Harefield Hospital, is spearheading this project and is very excited for 2020: “This will change people’s stay at Harefield. Some of our patients are here for months while waiting for their life saving operation or even afterwards with complications or just the recovery. This garden will have such a positive impact on our patients’ lives and mental health which can suffer during those tough times. I hope we can enjoy this beautiful garden next summer!”

Thanks to some generous donations, the outside hedge has already been put in and the ground works will start in the new year. We at the Harefield Transplant Club are honoured to be able to support this fantastic project and have pledged a donation and we are also fundraising specifically for this garden.


We still need lots of beautiful, low-maintenance plants for the Transplant Garden so why not sponsor a plant or two, maybe as a Christmas present for a loved one or just as a donation to this project?

Just find the Harefield Transplant Club on the JUST GIVING website here, sponsor £10 per plant and make sure you write “Transplant Unit Garden” in the message so we can allocate the funds correctly. THANK YOU!!
