A sensory garden has been created at a Hoylake care home.

The Co-operative Bank customer donation fund helped pay for the relaxing space at The Old Garden on Meols Drive, which was created by dementia support charity, the Josephine Sara Foundation.

The garden specifically caters to those living with dementia, enabling them to take part in gardening activities.

Antonia Sara Kelly, chair at Josephine Sara Foundation said: “The money we have received from The Co-operative Bank Customer Donation Fund has been crucial as it has enabled us to both further develop our garden at Hoylake through the introduction of information signs and look at creating a new garden at another local care home, in the coming months.

“The garden is so important as not only does it provide an additional space for relatives to visit and spend invaluable time with their loved ones but it also enables residents to enjoy fresh air and proximity to calm and beautiful planting in a specially designed environment.”

Amelia Burnett, SME Product Manager at The Co-operative Bank, said: “Supporting our customers, particularly smaller charities and community projects, has never been more important.

We are proud to have been able to provide these grants to projects across the UK that are positively impacting communities, at a time when many people are facing cost of living challenges.”
