Gemma Lighting helps fulfil hospital dream

October 18, 2012

Gemma Lighting LTD were one of the many parties coming together to help realise the dream of the late Terry Creedon at Wexham Park Hospital in Slough earlier this month.

Terry, an Occupational Therapist Technician in the Acute Stroke Unit, was held in high regard at Wexham for his work with stroke victims, and believed strongly that a key tool in the rehabilitation of patients was horticultural work. But the small garden outside the stroke unit yielded little opportunity for this, and Terry sketched his own grand design for what the garden could potentially become.

Before Terry could implement his big plans for the site however, he sadly passed away last year at the age of just 46. Communications network 02, as part of their community scheme the ‘Think Big Programme’, called together several companies to help make Terry’s designs come to life in his honour, and Gemma Lighting was proud to be one of those able to help.

Neptune 5 LED bollard lights were installed in the garden to provide bright white light to patients as they enjoy their new surroundings, whilst giving the hospital minimal energy and environmental concerns. Sales director Mark Major travelled to Slough to attend the opening of the garden (pictured) with several other key personnel that helped make Terry’s dream become a reality.

Project manager Gary Damiano said: “It was good to work with Gemma Lighting on this project, and we were very impressed with the way in which they handled themselves. Their staff excelled with their service and they were very straightforward to deal with. We would like to thank Gemma Lighting and its employees for their help on this worthwhile project.”
