Plants available 2020
If you are a front line worker in the NHS or a Little Havens Hospice employee then you can have 3 main plants free and a selection of what others are available. This will be for the first 20 people that request them on a first come first serve basis. I will then see what is left and assess if I can offer any more. 7 have already taken advantage of this offer. No response yet from Southend Hospital Wellbeing Team to my offer is on their website.
