Memory Tree - Flower heads

There are 15 Cow Parsley flower heads at the base of the tree that have more space than the leaves for your dedication (up to 55 characters). It may be a family member who died at the hospice or a friend who has had nothing to do with our care; they may have died recently or a long time ago.

These flower heads remain a wonderful tribute to those lives we want to remember and celebrate. You will help to raise money for the hospice, enabling us to help more patients and their families.

There is a suggested minimum donation of £500, but you may wish to donate more to help us help others.

Once you have made a donation, you will receive information about how to leave details of the wording for your dedication in an email. If you do not receive an email within 1hr please check your SPAM folder or contact Jenna Stringer, In Memory Co-Ordinator on 01323 434216.

Thank you for your support.
