Cancer charity Star Throwers is on the hunt for green-fingered volunteers to help maintain the garden at their centre in Wymondham.

The charity - which provides advice and wellbeing support to people affected by cancer and has supported more than 1,100 cancer patients - is surrounded by landscaped gardens which can be enjoyed by visitors.

The gardens are also used for fundraising events, such as Star Throwers' summer fete and open gardens.

Steven Ho, General Manager, said one of the charity's aim was to provide support and advice in a relaxing, welcoming environment.

He said: 'We want our garden to be a place where people affected by cancer can come to just relax, to take a breath and not worry about their cancer and/or treatments for a little while.'
