Forget Me Not Appeal
A Special Way to Remember
The ‘Forget Me Not Appeal’ is our appeal to raise funds for our ‘Bereavement Service’ which supports both Adults and Children.
Remembering a loved one is very personal and the ‘Forget Me Not Appeal’ is a unique and special way to remember and celebrate the life of someone important to you.
St David’s Hospice Care is committed to providing the very best palliative and end of life care to our patients and families. Losing a loved one is devastating and grief is a normal response; everyone’s reaction is unique and many people value bereavement support during this time.
This appeal offers an opportunity for your loved one to be remembered in a couple of ways:
- You can make a donation and receive a ‘Forget Me Not Flower’* as well as a website listing in the online ‘Memory Book’
- A website listing in the online ‘Memory Book’ and a packet of ‘Forget Me Not Flower’ Seeds.
The money raised from this appeal will help fund our free services offered to local people and their families. In return for donations received up to £30 we will send you a packet of ‘Forget Me Not Seeds’ and keepsake postcard. For donations of £30 or more you will receive your very own boxed ‘Forget Me Not’ Flower that can either be placed somewhere that your loved one would appreciate or you have the option to keep it in your own home.
Forget Me Not Remembrance Event
We will be planning an event in the Spring that will allow supporters to come along and take in part in a very special remembrance event, where you will have the opportunity to plant your Forget Me Not in tribute to your loved ones.
The date and location of the event are still to be arranged and will be announced shortly. If you have any questions then please feel free to get in touch on 01633 851042.
Some quotes from service users
“The service provided meant I could open up, talk about things I didn’t even know were an issue with my grief. It took time but with your support that hard and painful journey to acceptance was achieved.”
“The support you have given to me and more importantly my daughter will never be forgotten.”
“Without your support I am sure I would have needed medication but you helped me understand bereavement and the journey it involved and certainly equipped me with the coping skills for the future.”
