Remember your loved ones and support your local hospice by dedicating a sunflower in their memory this summer.
Sunflower Memories is an opportunity for you to remember a loved one or friend and help St Barnabas at the same time.
Throughout August, there will be a display of colourful sunflower markers, each bearing the name of a loved one for whom a donation had been made to the hospice.
Although restrictions are currently being relaxed, times are still uncertain, and we have therefore taken the decision to hold our Time of Reflection remotely once again this year. This years virtual service will be available to watch from Friday 13 August at 6pm.
You can watch last year’s virtual Time of Reflection below.
This year, we would like to warmly invite you to take advantage of the display of sunflowers being available to view throughout the month of August. If you’d like to see a sunflower dedicated to a loved one, then please feel able to come and do so. However, we do ask people visiting the hospice to remember that we are a clinical setting and sadly, the inside of the hospice has to remain closed to visits at this time.
Thank you for your understanding.
Judith will be dedicating a sunflower to her beloved husband, George, who was cared for by St Barnabas. Judith has kindly shared her experience of the care George received in his final days as well as the support given to her from our Bereavement Team.
In Judith’s own words: “I’ll never get used to George not being here. But Rosemary helped me get onto the road to learning to live in spite of the fact that I’d lost the person I loved most in the world. I would have struggled without having Rosemary as my bereavement buddy.”
Please take some time to read George’s story here.
All the care and support we offer to patients and their families is free of charge. We are here for them 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The hospice, and the care it provides, only exists because of donations from generous local people like you. Any contribution you are able to make will be gratefully received.
