Stockport’s Gigantic Leap Frog Art Trail 2021

This year at St Ann’s we’re celebrating our 50th anniversary and there’s been so much going on already to mark our magnificent milestone but now we’re very excited to be part of this frog-tastic art trail!

We’re proud to be the beneficiary of Stockport’s Gigantic Leap Frog Art Trail 2021 that will see 21 gigantic frogs hopping into Stockport town centre from 24th July until 26th September.

In 2019, Stockport’s first frog trail attracted thousands and thousands of new visitors, residents and families of all ages to the town centre, so we’re thrilled to be involved this year.

We hope that lots of excited children (and big children) seek out all 21 giant frogs on the trail and have a ribbiting adventure!

We’re really grateful to Totally Stockport, Stockport’s Business Improvement District, for choosing us to benefit from the proceeds of the trail.

Giant One Stockport frogs will be hopping out across the borough too, so keep your eyes peeled to see how many you can spot!

For more information go to:

If you join the trail and would like to make a donation to St Ann’s, you can donate here: – thanks for your support.

St Ann’s garden at The Manchester Flower Show

St Ann’s Hospice is one of the oldest and largest adult hospices in the UK. This year, we’re celebrating 50 years of caring for patients and their families in Greater Manchester.  

Manchester leads the way in so many areas – and as a hospice we are proud to lead the way too, providing world-class care from right here in this amazing city.  

Our garden in The Manchester Flower Show has been created by a team of our volunteer gardeners, creative therapists and Girlguiding volunteers under the direction of hospice supporter and garden designer Maria Stripling, and visual artist and designer, Lynne Duric. 

Come and see us in King’s Street, Manchester

Set amongst perennial planting in raised beds crafted from the pallets used to deliver PPE in the past year, the garden also reveals some little-known aspects of hospice care. This is a garden that shows the depth of the care provided to all who pass through the hospice’s doors. 

Our garden is only made possible thanks to our generous supporters:
