That this House congratulates the Queen Margaret Hospice Garden Group on its successful campaign to raise funds to create a garden at the Queen Margaret Hospice in Dunfermline; notes that a total of £50,000 has been raised so far through a combination of individual donations and grants, with £11,000 of this raised purely from private donations; understands that the project aims to create a modem, innovative garden designed to facilitate full access for hospital beds and wheelchairs, offering patients nearing the end of their lives the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in a peaceful space with their family and friends; welcomes the progress made by the Group in just a year from conception to completion, with work on the garden set to be completed very shortly; pays credit to all of the volunteers and NHS Fife staff involved for their planning, hard work and determination to drive the project forward; and applauds the generosity in particular of the private donors who have kindly donated money out of their own pockets to help make this dream a reality.
