A TREE has been planted in memory of a Doncaster gardener who worked for the NHS for 41 years.

Bob Jackson died in February 2012, just after his 66th birthday, but now his memory lives on at St Catherine’s Hospital, Balby, thanks to a magnolia tree planted on the site in the garden that he loved to work in.

Bob started work for the NHS in 1970, initially working at Montagu Hospital, Mexborough, and then at the St Catherine’s site up to late 2011. Throughout his career he tended the gardens and grounds of the hospital and hospice sites.
