A memorable day in Horatio’s Garden: Treasure hunt and afternoon tea

On 20 June 2024, our Serious Injury Team organised a delightful treasure hunt and afternoon tea in the beautiful Horatio’s Garden, Wales. The event brought together patients, families, friends, and staff for a memorable day filled with sunshine, laughter and exploration.

The garden, resplendent in full bloom, provided a picturesque location for the day’s activities. Children eagerly participated in a treasure hunt, searching for stones created by the talented artist, Stephanie Roberts. Equipped with ten intriguing clues, the young explorers scoured every corner of the garden, their excitement palpable as they uncovered each hidden gem.

Meanwhile, an exquisite afternoon tea was enjoyed by all. The spread featured a variety of delicious treats, and the warm weather made it the perfect setting for such a gathering. Patients and guests chatted and laughed over cups of tea, with the serene garden atmosphere adding to the enjoyment.

In addition to the treasure hunt, a fused glass art session with Cathy O’Doherty captured the interest of the patients. It was heartwarming to see the garden buzzing with activity, as staff members from the ward took advantage of their breaks to join in the festivities, savouring a slice of cake and a cuppa.

Partner and Joint head of our Serious Injury team, Cari Sowden-Taylor said:

“The event was a resounding success, showcasing not only the beauty of Horatio’s Garden, but also the garden’s spirit of community supported by the event organised by our team. It was a day to remember, filled with joy, creativity, and a sense of togetherness.”

Ruth Andrew, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Horatio’s Garden added:

“It was fantastic to have Hugh James host a Treasure Hunt and Afternoon Tea for our beneficiaries and their loved ones in the garden. It was so lovely to see so many people participating in the day and enjoying the activities and garden. Thank you to everyone involved in organising the event.”
