The ‘Lets clear the air with Cetriz’ themed garden, which won a well-deserved Bronze medal at Bloom in the ‘People’s Choice Award’ this year has found a permanent home on the grounds of Cork University Hospital.  The garden will provide a relaxed space for patients and their families along with the dedicated team of staff at the hospital.

“We were so delighted with how many people loved the Cetriz garden in Bloom this year that we wanted to share it with many more! The ideal place was found in Cork University Hospital near the Intensive Care Unit” says Tony Hynds, Managing Director of Actavis, “we hope that patients and visitors alike will enjoy a Bloom garden every day of the year and we are delighted to be able to share it with them.”

Inspired by the Cetriz campaign ‘Lets clear the air’ Creator of the Cetriz garden, Chris Byrne garden designer, was challenged to create a ‘Hayfever Friendly Garden’.  The garden path winds through a thoughtful array of pretty flowering ‘Hayfever Friendly’ plants, shrubs and trees complete with butterflies poles and mosaics and leading us to a wonderful swing.

“Our patients will benefit from having a peaceful and tranquil garden that they can go to, in what is an otherwise very busy environment”. said Mr. Tony McNamara, CEO, Cork University Hospital; ‘On behalf of the hospital and CUH Charity, I would like to thank Actavis for their extremely generous donation of the Bloom garden to the ICU Unit at CUH.”
