Designed as a sensory haven, this garden brings joy, hope and escapism through nature for children undergoing cancer treatment, no matter where they live in the world.
Circular raised beds, made from perforated clay blocks, offer diverse sensory experiences through soft-touch plants, fragrant herbs, and vibrant mosses whilst the lower raised beds cultivate edible plants for exploration. These low-maintenance, resilient plants symbolise the countries supported by World Child Cancer to improving global child cancer survival rates through community and healthcare empowerment.
Supporting emotional wellbeing, a child and a parent can stroll through the reclaimed brick path which leads them to a scenic meadow surrounded by tall trees, perennials, annuals, and shrubs. At its heart lies a seating area which is a restful place for children and their loved ones.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
World Child Cancer is the leading international children’s charity dedicated to addressing the global inequality in childhood cancer care. Founded in 2007, the charity supports 13 programmes in Africa, Asia and Central America.
The garden's permanent home will be in the grounds of CLIC House in Bristol, a 'Home from Home' of UK charity Young Lives vs Cancer providing free accommodation to families while their children are receiving cancer treatment. Young Lives vs Cancer aligns with World Child Cancer's belief that every child with cancer should have the support and help that they need.
