The beautiful Memory Tree is on the wall in the central Street area of St Wilfrid’s Hospice for all visitors to view and enjoy.

The Memory Tree has been created so that supporters, visitors, friends and family can dedicate one of the 450 leaves on the tree to a loved one.

How do I add my leaf?

Inscribing your loved ones name and your words, up to 26 characters, on a leaf of your choice, we will hang it on the tree for a year with the option to renew after that time. 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 leaves remain a wonderful tribute to those lives we want to remember and celebrate. You will be helping to raise money for the hospice, enabling us to help more patients and their families. We also have a printable form and an online form further down the page.
