Say it with Sunflowers
Sunday July 16, 2017
Celebrate the life of someone special this summer by dedicating a sunflower in the beautiful grounds of Saint Michael’s Hospice, or get together with friends and family to hold a Sunflower Celebration at home, sharing memories of the people who continue to illuminate our lives.
As well as celebrating the life of loved ones, funds donated or raised through your tribute will help Saint Michael’s care for more families in our community.
|Description||Two ways to remember someone special |
1.Hold your own Sunflower Celebration at home with friends and family
Whether it’s a summer’s evening garden get-together, a special family meal or a cuppa and cake with colleagues, it’s the perfect opportunity to remember and celebrate the lives of loved ones. It could be sharing stories and fond memories, cooking dishes in tribute to a special someone or lighting candles in their memory.
We’ll send you a pack to help make it a magical occasion, including lanterns, poems and readings, sunflower seeds, sunflower bunting and ideas on how to raise funds at your event to help Saint Michael’s care for more local people.
2. Make a dedication and join Saint Michael's at an open garden event
Your dedication means your special someone will have their very ownsunflower and a personalised plaque displayed in their name, in the beautiful gardens of Saint Michael’s Hospice this summer.
Make your dedication by Friday July 14 using the dedication form overleaf. Once you’ve made your dedication, you’ll be invited to an open garden event on Sunday July 16 from 11am—1pm. It’s a chance to view your sunflower with family and friends, share a coffee with staff and volunteers from Saint Michael's and Just ‘B’, the bereavement support service.
Saint Michael’s and Just ‘B’ services are provided free of charge to more than 2,000 local people each year. Here’s how making a donation for your dedication can help families in our community
