We're so looking forward to welcoming our supporters back into the beautiful gardens here at Willow Wood for our Butterfly Memory Release this summer.
It is a very moving way to remember those loved ones who are no longer with us, yet at the same time setting a Painted Lady butterfly free to fly among the blooms of the Hospice is a joyous and uplifting occasion.
Held as part of the Summer Fete there will be three such releases throughout the day, each following a short blessing from one of the Hospice's chaplains.
Everyone remembered in this way will receive an A4 memento bearing the name of their loved one, however, for a more permanent reflection of your love, we are offering a hand-painted 40cm high metal butterfly with a 20cm wingspan. These can be positioned in our Memory Garden or taken home with you.
There will also be refreshments available as part of the Summer Fete and of course a wide range of gifts, crafts and more.
Full details will be following soon, but in the meantime please make a note in your diary of the date.
