Richmond shop donates plants to NHS staff

Friary Hospital staff with the plants donated by Meynells.

A Richmond shop has donated dozens of plants to local NHS workers.

Pet and garden supplies store Meynells dropped off a whole rack of plants to the Friary Community Hospital.

Shop owner John Meynell said he wanted to show his support to NHS staff at this difficult time.

He added: “I’ve always had a great affinity for Richmond Friarage Hospital.

“They have always been very kind to our family and I appreciate how lucky we are to have a hospital to liken the Friary in our community.

“I just wanted to say thank to the staff for their support and help to Richmond and thought a few plants would help them enjoy the free time that they do get.” [kofi]
