Have your say

A CHILDREN’S hospice is hoping to create a community garden to say thank you to its supporters – but it needs your vote to make it possible.

Grace House is up against Newcastle’s Ouseburn Farm Charity, with both hoping to win the £50,000 from The People’s Millions.

But there can only be one winner, and phone lines open on Monday, November 25.

A telephone number will be published at www.peoplesmillions.org.uk from 9am.

The Grace House Children’s Hospice Garden appeal will be broadcast on the ITV Tyne Tees news at 6pm, and people can cast their vote until midnight.

Grace House fund-raiser Karen Maclennan said: “The local communities have helped us build and equip Grace House, and we would like to give something back by providing a shared community garden, which will incorporate the Walk of Life.

She added: “We would like to give as many local people as possible, from schoolchildren to community groups, the opportunity to get involved by volunteering to help us create our special gardens.”
