Our Memory Tree

HOSPICESTFRANCIS MEMORY TREE close up on leavesThis unique handmade sculpture, designed by local artist Claudia Ashley-Brown, offers a wonderful way to remember someone special whose memory you hold dear.  It is situated in a prime position at our Hospice and will be seen daily by all who come to visit.

Our Memory Tree is adorned with 450 autumnal coloured leaves which will be engraved with the name of a loved one as a lasting tribute to their memory. For a minimum donation of £120 (or just £10 per month), each leaf will be engraved with the name of a loved one and once dedicated, will remain in place for a year, at the end of which it can either be renewed or sent to its owners in a special keepsake box.

Thanks to a generous donation from the son of a former patient, all the costs of the sculpture, plus engraving costs for all 450 leaves, have been covered, meaning that 100% of all the money donated for a leaf will fund patient care.

 “When I first heard about the Hospice In Memory Tree I knew I wanted a leaf! Visiting mum’s grave with young children isn’t easy but I can’t wait to show them their Grandma’s named leaf on this beautifully designed tree. It’s great that we will have something unique to remember mum by, but also to support and acknowledge the caring role that this remarkable hospice played in our lives.” Julia Bolsom
