Tree of life creates lasting memories at Willen Hospice

Dec 09, 2018

The hospice is offering people an opportunity to order a leaf in memory of someone special.

For a donation to the Hospice, a stainless steel leaf can be engraved with a message of choice – either a memorable date, a name or an uplifting message.

Families will be invited to hang their engraved leaf on the Tree of Life which stands in a Peace Garden at the hospice.
Lisa Kinrade, project and partnership development manager at Willen Hospice said “The tree of life makes a really special addition to the Hospice gardens. Dedicating a leaf will be a lasting and poignant way to remember someone special.

"The Peace Garden provides a space for quiet reflection for friends and family to visit or mark memorable occasions like anniversaries or birthdays.”

The project is a result of local business and artistic collaboration. Will Jones, a local blacksmith conceptualised and crafted the tree. Brian Mitchell, a local retired landscape architect designed the garden to frame the tree and provide a quiet haven.

By dedicating a leaf, people in the local community will be helping Willen Hospice to support patients who are facing life limiting illnesses. The Hospice needs to raise £9 a minute to provide the ongoing service.
