Gruffalo and mouse have joined the other creatures in the garden trail at St Nicholas Hospice Care. They were created by Ben Loughrill who made the St Edmund Wolf at Southgate Green roundabout. Money was raised by supporters of Nicky’s Way for bereaved children and My Blue Heart, a charity also supporting bereaved children.

On Friday a tea party was held at the hospice for people who helped raise the money. This included carol singers from Westley who raise money for Nicky’s Way every Christmas, volunteer Barbara Murfitt and My Blue Heart.

Yvonne Holman, the hospice family support worker for children, said: “We are really grateful for the support, because the Gruffalo and mouse are a wonderful addition to the hospice.

“We already had a carved fox, snake and owl in the garden - animal which feature in the Gruffalo books. They are part of our garden trail which children and grown-ups can follow.”
