Former England footballer Joe Cole has launched a garden designed to promote well-being at a hospital.

Located at the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham, the garden is planned to be the first of several in the country.

The aim is to allow staff, patients and visitors to “connect with nature” and “rest, reflect and recuperate”.

The project is being supported by Mr Cole and his wife Carly’s 11 Foundation, which works with charities on community initiatives.

Comedy’s favorite cozy sweater in human form, Joe Pera, has done a lot of work helping us all feel calm and relaxed over the years, and now he’s translating his soothing skills into a new book.
