Get involved now and give patients a tonic

Spring is in the air and Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board, along with Keep Wales Tidy are hoping to secure £50,000 of National Lottery funding as part of this year’s People’s Projects.  Were you aware of this?

Now, we all know or can imagine how miserable it can be to be stuck inside a hospital ward, so wouldn’t it be great if the team could transform some of the hospital grounds for patients, staff and visitors to sit out in and enjoy?  Part of the healing process even.

If successful, the money would be spent on transforming unloved areas at three hospitals – Morriston and Gorseinon in Swansea and Ysbyty Cwm Rhondda in neighbouring Cwm Taf.

The aim is to create quiet havens that will benefit the health and wellbeing not just of patients but visitors and hardworking staff.

But Keep Wales Tidy is only one of five groups in Wales in the running for the funding and the decision on who will get it rests on a public vote.  Voting closes on Monday, April 15.

I have just cast my vote. Pop along to the website and register your vote now.  Let’s help make a difference today.
