The Memory Tree

The Memory Tree sits upon the wall in the heart of the Hospice reception at St John's to support those who wish to remember someone special.

The tree is made up of a collection of beautiful copper, silver and gold leaves, which are made in dedication to your loved one. Each leaf is engraved with your loving message, or the name of the person you want to remember in this meaningful and beautiful display.    

Your leaf will remain on our tree for you to visit for the duration. As your dedication nears its time period coming to a close, we will contact you to see if you would like to renew your leaf’s fund or if you would like for this to be returned to you to keep at home in a place.  

Personalised inscriptions are up to 26 characters (including spaces). Once the one, two or five year display time comes to a close, you have the option to renew the time of your leaf, or we will box it up and send it to you to keep.

MuchLoved

St John’s Hospice has partnered with the online platform MuchLoved to enable our supporters to set up online tribute pages in memory of their loved ones.  A tribute page offers a dedicated space to honour that special person by sharing photos, videos and memories with friends and family.  
The page stays open indefinitely and can be updated at any time, be that on a birthday, anniversary or just when needed.  The pages are free to set up but donations can be made to St John’s Hospice and any other charities that the family wishes to support.

Online Funeral Notices

MuchLoved can also be used to create an online funeral notice; to easily share details of the day and collect donations in memory of loved ones. Following the funeral the page can then remain open and be used like a tribute page to share memories and offer a long-lasting memorial.
Funeral notices can be set up by the funeral home on behalf of the family or the family can create the page themselves.

If you have any questions please get in touch with St John’s Digital Fundraising Lead, Lauren Akrigg, who will be able to assist with your queries.

Funeral Collection Boxes

Many people find holding a collection at a funeral or wake can be positive act, during an often-challenging time. St John’s offer donation boxes for use at these or any other event you would like to hold and collect funds for us.

These boxes can also be customised with you loved one’s name and photograph for free by the St John’s team.

Keepsake Cushions

A special way for you to remember a loved one & support the work of St John’s Hospice.

The volunteer sewers of St John’s Hospice will create an intricately stitched patchwork cushion from the garments of your loved one. These lovingly crafted cushions provide a tangible way for you and your family to remember someone and hold them close.

To make one of the very special patchwork cushions we will need between 4-10 freshly laundered shirts, blouses or other cotton garments (10 is ideal).

Other wonderful designs are also available – The Wise Owl and Never Forget Elephant. These can be made with a wider variety of fabrics. Simply bring us your treasured items and we will advise on the best options.

We ask for minimum donations of £40 for cushions and £30 for animal designs. If you would like to have a Keepsake Cushion created please contact Sarah Thornton on 01524 382538 Email [email protected]

Thank you for helping us to keep on caring
