Today you can support families coming to terms with a devasting diagnosis as well as provide a lasting tribute for your loved one with the Memory Orchard, a stunning new in-memory installation at Hospice in the Weald.
For a year (or longer if you wish!) your loved one’s name will be on an inscribed leaf, which will hang on the beautiful Memory Orchard installation.
Hospice in the Weald have worked with a local artist to create the Memory Orchard, an elegant tree sculpture on which you can hang copper leaves dedicated to loved ones. The Memory Orchard sculpture will sit in the peaceful Hospice garden, nestled amongst the trees, overlooking the local orchards and oast houses.
The copper leaves are engraved with the name of your loved one and a personal inscription. The leaves will be made of copper and can be gently moulded into a unique leaf shape. Also, the copper will age with Verdigris, to form a leaf that is as unique as the person you are remembering.
The leaves will hang on the tree for a year, for a suggested donation of £120. Every leaf engraved with the name of someone special will not only be creating a unique personal tribute but will also support current patients and their families make the most of precious moments together.
After a year, we will send the leaf to you to keep somewhere special, or you can renew if you would like to keep the leaf on the Memory Orchard for another year.
To provide a lasting tribute to your loved one, while supporting the incredible work of Hospice in the Weald, simply complete the form below to add your leaf to the Memory Orchard.
“Thank you, Hospice in the Weald, for giving us the chance to stay a family up until my Dad died. Please, help families like mine enjoy the precious time they have together by dedicating a leaf to your loved one.” Jess, Hospice in the Weald family member
