Teenage Cancer Unit - Rooftop Terrace

Posted by David Griffiths on 28 April 2015

Highfields Hockey Centre and Beeston Hockey Club have been working alongside the Probation Service and several local businesses on a project to refurbish the rooftop terrace at  the Tennage Cancer Unit at Nottingham City Hospital. 

A charity auction took place in June 2014 at Arther Johnson and Sons Auctioneers at the Nottingham Auction Centre. Beeston Hockey Club and Highfields provided a bar and catering for the event which raised £20,000 for the project.

Highfields donated 300 square metres of AstroTurf which was craned on to the roof to provide a grass effect for the roof garden. The terrace was officially opened on Saturday 25th April 2015 by Phil Kirk from the Probation Service and Jason Motley from Arthur Johnson and Sons Auctioneers.

The garden will provide a peaceful and tranquil area for the teenagers, their families and staff to relax in. Photos of the project before and after are below.
