A Wiltshire-based national charity that transforms the lives of NHS patients with spinal injuries has received a remarkable cash boost from our Salisbury home, Braemar Lodge.

Residents and team members set an in-house record when they raised nearly £2,830 for Horatio’s Garden.

Among the activities, residents made and sold items from their arts and crafts sessions, including greeting cards, paintings and other gift ideas.

Speaking at an end-of-campaign presentation, charity director Alison Pascalidis said: “This is just fantastic and I can’t thank you enough. You have come up with all manner of lovely fundraising. It’s amazing to think you have made us your charity. We rely very heavily on local fundraising and we work hard to make sure that every penny goes into making accessible, beautiful and therapeutic gardens at NHS hospitals for people with spinal issues to spend time in and appreciate.”
