Support the Forget Me Not campaign

Remember your loved one and cherish their memory with a Forget Me Not.

We are so pleased that so many of our wonderful supporters have made this years Forget Me Not so special.

The Flowers were displayed at Wilderness Wood, Dunorlan Park and Riverhill Himalayan Gardens throughout May, for a private moment of remembrance and contemplation. Additionally, we hosted Ceremonies of Dedication at each location, giving the chance for people come together and join others in celebrating and remembering the lives of those they love.

You can still purchase a flower and dedicate it in memory of your loved one for a suggested minimum donation of £25. For more information about how to purchase a flower, please contact Rachael Heath on 01892 820 508 or email rachael.heath@hospiceintheweald.org.uk for more information.

Each beautiful Forget Me Not flower is individual and by patients, families, carers, staff and volunteers. This year our flowers are purple and yellow and are currently planted in our beautiful Hospice garden for you to come and visit.

Bev is a Hospice Day Service volunteer, and has helped make and create the Forget Me Not flowers since the campaign started in 2015.

“The patients are at the heart of the campaign,” says Bev, “with everyone – their families, the staff , volunteers and people in our community whose loved ones have died at the Hospice – all coming together to remember them and create something unique”

We would like to thank Glazy Daisy in Tunbridge Wells for kindly helping again this year with the glazing of the Forget Me Not flowers.
