A respite garden in the heart of Camden has been overhauled thanks to donations from Costa Coffee stores in the area.

Seven local Costa stores clubbed together to donate £700 to provide much needed funds to revamp the garden on Huntley Street, near to both University College London Hospital and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
Paul’s House provides respite for children and young people with cancer and their families, and aims to be a sort of ‘home from home.’ While the average length of stay is around eight days, families have the option to stay for months at a time.
With the money donated by Costa staff at the centre were able to completely make over the garden with new flowers, shrubs and plants.
Enrico Cantoni, London Regional Manager for Costa, said ; “Paul’s House is just a stones throw away from our store on Tottenham Court Road and as such our team there are extremely familiar with all the fantastic work that is being done by the charity. The team suggested getting neighbouring stores to club together to support in a way that would be most valued by the charity. We’re thrilled with the impact our donation has had and how the garden looks and I hope that guests can benefit from it.”
