Forget Me Nots

Forget-me-not Appeal

Dedicating a flower sculpture in a loved one’s name is a unique way to remember them and treasure their memory. That’s why we have launched a striking new range of forget-me-nots – a flower traditionally associated with remembrance.

By reserving your forget-me-not today, you will have your own beautiful lasting tribute to someone special – whether a family member, friend or colleague – for many years to come. What’s more, your donation will help to make a real difference to the lives of our patients and their families, enabling them to get the vital care and support they need when they need it most.

By making a suggested donation of £25 per forget-me-not, you could pay for one hour of expert inpatient nursing care for one of our patients.

Our stunning forget-me-nots, each measuring 43cm in length and 17cm in diameter, have been custom made by the British Ironwork Centre and are available in a choice of two colours – purple or sky blue, so you may wish to reserve your favourite colour or the compete set.

The forget-me-nots will be available for collection from Van Hage Garden Centre, Chenies, WD3 6EN on Sunday 29th May and from the Hospice on the following dates: Wednesday 8th June, Saturday 11th June, Wednesday 9th November and Saturday 12th November 2022. The first 1,000 forget-me-nots will be available to collect in May and June. If your order is made after the first 1,000 have been reserved, we will contact you to advise you to collect it in November.

How your gift could help make a difference to local people in need of our services:

  • £25 could pay for one hour of expert inpatient nursing care, relieving a patient’s anxiety and pain and helping them to feel safe and supported.

  • £60 could pay for a home visit by one of our community doctors, ensuring a patient receives personalised care and support in the comfort of their home.

  • £96 could pay for a therapist for a day to provide a reflexology, massage or acupuncture treatment to our inpatients and outpatients. These treatments help reduce physical pain and anxiety, and improve physical and mental wellbeing.
