The new facility was funded through the efforts of members of Melton Belvoir Rotary Club.

Rotarians have been hard at work making the finishing touches t it ready for summer, so people can enjoy the stunning views over the Vale of Belvoir from the hospice gardens.

Chris Gatfield, Dove’s CEO, said: “We are delighted to have the summerhouse ready for our guests to enjoy – they are already making the most of it and relaxing in our lovely gardens.”

The summerhouse was paid for through a £2,000 grant from The Rotary Foundation.

Dove Cottage is a vital facility providing day care for local people living with life-limiting illnesses.

Wellbeing is a big part of the hospice’s approach and the lovely gardens are a vital part of its care package.
