Heart of Memories

Our families often ask us if they can have a memorial for their loved one at the hospice, and we have not been able to offer this until now. We know that your loved ones are forever in your heart, and we wanted to give you the option of having a tribute to them within the Hospice grounds. This stunning piece of art is inspired by the love that we see every day.

A lasting tribute

The Heart of Memories sculpture is a new and unique opportunity for you to share what made your loved one special to you, and to form part of a lasting tribute here within the Hospice gardens.

An impressive bespoke sculpture, Heart of Memories is handcrafted by local sculptor Neil Wood in the highest quality stainless steel. A heart was chosen quite simply because it is the universal symbol for LOVE and this stunning piece of art is inspired by the love that we see between our patients and their family and friends every day.

Inside the distinctive 2m x 2m 3D structure will securely hang 600 engraved steel hearts. Each of these hearts will hold a unique memory of someone who is deeply loved and missed. We would like to offer you the opportunity to dedicate a heart to your loved one(s).

Dedicate a Heart to your Loved One

In return for a donation to support our vital services, you will be able to dedicate a beautiful stainless steel heart. Inscribed with the name of your loved one(s) and a personal memory or message, the heart will hang securely on the sculpture. You will also receive a commemorative card.

Hearts are available to dedicate all year round.  Once your heart has been engraved and hung on the sculpture you will be invited to come along and view your heart.

Thank you for your continued support; it really is appreciated and makes such a big difference to local families.
