This year Farleigh Hospice is proud to launch its ‘Forget-me-not’ appeal, a wonderfully powerful and positive way to celebrate the life of someone special.

Forget-me-not service

As part of this celebration of life we are holding our forget-me-not service, held in the grounds of Farleigh Hospice on Saturday 13th July. Arrival is at 1:30pm and the service starts at 2pm.

This event is open to anyone who would like to celebrate the life of a loved one. During the short service there will be a number of readings and performances followed by refreshments and the opportunity to visit the forget-me-not display.

Forget-me-not tags

You can share your special memories, thoughts and feelings on one of our forget-me-not tags. Your tag will be displayed on a beautiful heart, which will be available to view during our service. 

Forget-me-not flowers

This year we also have a number of limited edition, wrought iron forget-me-not flowers, which have been skilfully crafted by the British Ironwork Centre. Throughout July, the forget-me-not flowers will form part of an art exhibition, creating a sea of a thousand flowers in our beautiful gardens.

If you would like your own special wrought iron forget-me-not flower, all we ask is for a suggested donation of £20 per flower. At the end of July your forget-me-not flower will be cleaned, repackaged and ready for collection from the hospice.

Your flower will be ready for collection on:

  • Wednesday 28th August between 4:30pm and 8pm
  • Saturday 31st August between 10am and 1pm

Alternatively, for a small charge, we can arrange for your flower to be delivered straight to your door.  

To ensure everyone is able to view this symbolic exhibition, if you are unable to attend on Saturday 13th July we ask you to contact Allison Jones on 01245 457346 or [email protected] to arrange a suitable viewing time. 

Through this simple act of remembering someone special, you will be helping Farleigh Hospice to continue to provide care and support for anyone affected by a life-limiting illness or bereavement.
