BEREAVED families are being invited to remember their loved ones by planting and writing their names on a special sunflower.
St Richard’s Hospice will be hosting two memory days this summer with the first set to take place next Sunday (July 6) followed by another on Sunday, August 3.
The new event has been created as part of the hospice’s 30th anniversary celebrations where for a donation of their choice, families will receive a 20cm high wooden sunflower onto which the names of the loved one can be written.
Families will then be able to plant the sunflower in the hospice garden.
Lizzie Brazier, St Richard’s community fund-raiser, said: “The sunflower memory days will be held in our lovely hospice garden, which forms a beautiful backdrop for this special occasion.
“The days will also include a time of reflection led by hospice Chaplain Revd. David Knight.”
The Sunflower Memory Days are open to everyone who has lost a loved one, not just those with a connection to St Richard’s Hospice.
