New memory tree at Primrose Hospice helps people remember their loved ones

A NEW Memory Tree has been placed at Primrose Hospice for families to remember a loved one.

Ironmonger Steve Webb from SPW Ironworks created the tree which now sits in the hospice’s peaceful courtyard thanks to a private donation from a supporter.

It is hoped that the tree will be filled with delicate leaves bearing the names of supporters’ loved ones.

The hospice is inviting people to purchase a gold or silver leaf which will be engraved with the name of their loved one which they wish to remember.

Emma Williams, Fundraising Manager at Primrose Hospice, said: “Primrose’s Memory Tree is a very beautiful way to remember a loved one throughout the year.

“Our courtyard is the heart of the hospice but it is also a very quiet and tranquil space which is perfect if you would like a few moments of reflection.

“The leaves are not only a lovely way to remember a special person but also contributes to the hospice’s ongoing care and support of our patients and families.

“We hope that our Memory Tree will soon be filled with beautiful messages of remembrance and will become a special place where families come to find peace and remember their loved one.”

Hospice chaplain Keith Judson hopes to hold regular Time to Remember events at the hospice in connection with the Memory Tree.

Family members can spend time in the courtyard with the Memory Tree and look at the Book of Remembrance in the Octagon, the hospice’s spiritual space, by appointment.

People can choose a gold or silver leaf for a contribution of £5 per month for 12 months or a minimum one-off contribution of £60 for each leaf.

After the 12-month period, people can choose to either take the leaf home or renew their subscription.

Anyone wishing to purchase a leaf or find out more information about the Memory Tree should visit https://primrosehospice.org/ or call 01527 871051 or email info@primrosehospice.org.
