Leading cancer charity have launched an interactive garden experience

Penny Brohn UK and a digital mapping company to develop an interactive journey around the gardens at its National Centre near Bristol

The interactive garden map allows users to explore the beautiful gardens where they can follow different journeys to discover information about the history of the garden and the plants and wildlife that live there.

The Penny Brohn National Centre’s gardens hope to give anyone affected by cancer the chance to explore nature and find a quiet place to relax, which with the introduction of the interactive map can be introduced on an even wider scale.


Penny Brohn UK were chosen as the winners of Natoguide’s competition to celebrate Small Charity Week in June. “It didn’t take us long to decide that Penny Brohn UK were worthy winners of our competition due to the fantastic work they do in helping those living with cancer,” said David Barter, CEO at Natoguide Ltd.

The interactive map allows users to have a comprehensive tour of the garden, learning more about its use for therapy and listening to an audio tour of the therapeutic journey around the grounds.

Penny Brohn UK has nearly 40 years’ experience supporting anyone with cancer and their loved ones, recognising that people with cancer need more than medicine. Their approach explores diet, exercise, relationships and managing stress, which can all be embodied by their expansive gardens.
