A Wiltshire-based charity which transforms the lives of patients with spinal injuries has reached a major milestone.
Horatio's Garden builds and maintains therapeutic green spaces at spinal injury units- the first was opened at Salisbury District Hospital in 2012.
Now work has begun on their most ambitious garden yet, at Stoke Mandeville's spinal injuries centre in Buckinghamshire.
Rachel Hepworth went to see the project getting underway:
Rachel spoke to Horatio's mother, Dr Olivia Chapple, and Gardener's World presenter Joe Swift who has designed the garden.
An unpromising patch of land will be transformed into a therapeutic garden for patients, many of whom spend months in hospital for treatment.
The charity was the brainchild of Horatio Chapple, an Eton schoolboy who was killed by a polar bear on an expedition to the arctic circle in 2011.
His mother Olivia has ploughed her energies into realising Horatio's dream. The 17 year old had wanted to become a doctor and volunteered at the Salisbury unit.
He realised the importance of outside space, away from the clinical atmosphere of a hospital.
