Thank you all!

Every single penny that was raised to build the Angel of Hope Garden was done through fundraising by local individuals and businesses.  We have never received any grants or funding at any stage of the build process, or at any time since.  We are eternally grateful for the incredible support we have received, and continue to receive, from the local community who have been instrumental in both helping us build the garden and keeping it going since we opened on 30 August 2015.

The incredible design of the garden is the work of Melbourne-based architect Stephen Todd. Stephen is a former Coleraine man who, when he heard about the plans for the garden, contacted Andrea and offered his services completely free of charge.

In order to bring Stephen and Andrea’s vision to life, the local community helped us raise a staggering £80,000 to pay for the build.  Some of the incredible fundraising efforts at this stage are listed below:
