Another beautiful article about Mark at the NHS Garden has been posted today.
A Wimbledon family met pop star Mark Owen from Take That at the opening of a new children’s garden at St George’s Hospital on Friday.
The 40-year-old chart topper was there to mark the opening of a dedicated outdoor play area for young patients at the hospital.
Former long-stay patient Joseph Bellamy, 8, from Wimbledon Chase, attended the event with his mum Louise, and his sister Megan, 5.
Louise, recounted that during Joseph’s four-month hospital stay in 2008, that they would have to go a considerable distance, with a wheelchair, to the nearest playground, which wasn’t always open.
“Having this lovely facility onsite will really help those children and their families during hospital stays,” she said.
“It is heart-warming to see Mark Owen involved with a local charity and spending so much time with the children who were obviously thrilled.”
Having described the playground as ‘magical’, Mark Owen then surprised the hospital with a gift of £20,000 from the Take That Trust.
