A stunning display of ‘Forget Me Not’ flowers – each to represent the life of someone special – will take pride of place on the lawn opposite St Mary’s Church in Nantwich this August as part of St Luke’s Hospice’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
Amy Magee, campaign and donor development manager at St Luke’s, said: “This year St Luke’s celebrates 30 years of caring – an amazing milestone in our work to support local families.
“To mark the incredible difference our care has made to so many people, we are inviting members of the community to remember a loved one with a beautiful Forget Me Not.
“Memories make life so special for each of us; the simple act of remembering your loved one with a Forget Me Not is a wonderful tribute to their memory, and your donation to St Luke’s will enable us to support many other people this summer.”
Amy explained: “When the display comes to an end, each flower will be carefully placed in a presentation box and taken back to the hospice ready for collection.
“The Forget Me Not can then sit outside in your garden as a lasting tribute for many years to come.”
The rector of St Mary’s Church in Nantwich, Revd Dr Mark Hart, said: “We are delighted to support this project.
“The Forget Me Nots are such a lovely idea and we hope St Luke’s gets a great response from the community. I think the display will be very impressive and I look forward to seeing it.”
Members of the public can dedicate a Forget Me Not in memory of a loved one for a suggested donation of £25.
Each Forget Me Not has been custom made by the British Ironwork Centre and stands 43cm high and 17cm wide. You can remember anyone special to you, they do not need to have been cared for by St Luke’s.
During August, every flower will be ‘planted’ and become part of two stunning art installations.
The displays in Nantwich, and the Danebridge Memorial in Northwich, can be seen from Friday 17th August until Sunday 2nd September.
