THE gardens of East London’s hospice for children have scooped two prestigious gardening awards.

Richard House, which cares for terminally-ill youngsters, won second place in both the large’ and small’ garden categories at the London Gardens Society awards.

“We are so happy to receive second place,” said a jubilant Navdeep Johal at the hospice in Beckton.

“But next year we are aiming for first.

“The garden is an integral part of our children’s stay at Richard House.

“It works as a sensory experience full of different colours, textures and scents and is interactive.”

Even their vegetable garden proved a success at the awards.

The front and back gardens have been created with the help of City workers and volunteers.
