BBC journalists visited the charity’s centre in Letchworth on Friday, and produced a feature on how the hospice is adapting to the COVID-19 crisis.

As a direct result of the pandemic, Garden House is forecasting losses of £25,000 a week – which equates to £1.3 million this year alone. 
The government has pledged to fill just over half of this fundraising gap, but the hospice is still facing a shortfall of £600,000.
