It is a privilege to be able to help people celebrate, reflect on and share the memories of their loved ones.
At the Hospice, we do that in a very special way – The Memory Tree. This beautiful tree of tributes has 600 leaves of gold, silver and bronze and each leaf can be inscribed with the name of a loved one, to be kept on the Memory Tree for as long as you wish. Beneath the Tree are six Foundation Stones, where names and messages can be inscribed together.
The Memory Tree takes pride of place in the Hospice Reception but inscriptions can be made for all loved ones, whether they had a connection to the Hospice or not. By celebrating a loved one in this special way, you will also be helping our Hospice to support and care for people and families living with life-limiting illness.
There are two donation options:
- A single one-off donation
- Or you can split the donation over 12 monthly payments
Each leaf can be inscribed and placed on the Memory Tree for a yearly donation. The leaf will be placed on the Tree for 12 months and we will write to you at the end of this period to ask if you would like to make further yearly donations to keep your leaf displayed. If, at any point you no longer wish to continue, you can choose to take your leaf home to keep.
Foundation stones can also be inscribed and will be displayed below the tree for 2 years. As with the leaves, we will keep in touch and ask if you would like to keep the stone beneath the tree or take it home instead.
Here are the donation amounts:
- Gold leaf – £300
- Silver leaf – £200
- Bronze leaf – £100
- Foundation stone – £1000
