Forget me not Campaign 2019
Remember a loved one with a beautiful
Forget-me-not flower and help your local hospice to flourish.
We would like to offer you the opportunity to celebrate a loved one by dedicating one of our beautiful Forget-me-not Flowers. Individually hand-crafted from durable steel the flowers will be an enchanting addition to your garden.
These colourful flowers designed for our 20th Anniversary year in 2016 will once again be available due to their popularity. The flowers will be displayed in the Hospice Gardens during the month of July creating a vibrant display. At the beginning of August we’d love you to come in, see the forget-me-not display and collect your flower(s), and if you wish, you will have the opportunity to talk to some of the Hospice staff about our work.
PLEASE NOTE: When you dedicate a flower you will receive an acknowledgement letter along with a Certificate of Dedication in the post for the flower(s) that you have dedicated.
If you are not able to dedicate a flower as part of the 'Forget-me-not Appeal' but would like to make a donation, you can do this here.
Through this simple act of remembering a loved one, and supporting your local Hospice, you’ll be helping to support others when they are at a really difficult time in their life.
The Forget-Me-Not collection dates for 2019 are:
Friday 2nd August 1.00pm - 4.00pm
Saturday 3rd August 1.00pm - 4.00pm
Sunday 4th August 1.00pm - 4.00pm
Linda’s story . . .
“My husband Billy was a patient at Woodlands Hospice in 2015. The staff and doctors showed us such great compassion, kindness, care and attention during his stay. Always there with a smile to lift our spirits, they helped make a very difficult time easier to cope with. They became like family and nothing was ever too much trouble for them.
I would like to thank such wonderful and special people for their love and support. They took away the worries of day to day life allowing me to be a wife and not a full time carer. This enabled Billy and I to spend very precious time together.
My family and I will always endeavour to support Woodlands Hospice in any way we can, especially the Forget-me-not Appeal as it is so very close to our hearts.
Thank you in the hope that you will choose to support Woodlands Hospice as I have done through their
Forget-me-not Appeal 2017.”
