Dedicate a flower in your Memory Garden

WHAT IS IT?

Your memory garden enables you to create a beautiful garden full of messages of love and kindness to all those we have loved and lost. You can share your words and pictures of the people who have touched your life and share with us and others what they meant to you.

WHY DEDICATE?

Planting your memories means that your donation will help more patients to receive care and support.  Your donation will help to pay towards the £13,000 it costs to run patient services throughout our area every day. We are constantly amazed by the wonderful donations and the things you do to raise money for St Wilfrid’s Hospice. Never forget, your gift supports others.

"The volunteers are absolutely something else. They all knew my name from the first day, I am always their priority." Jackie Sharp

Jackie was admitted to St Wilfrid’s Hospice in June and, sadly, died here a few weeks later. Her effervescent personality and zest for life meant she was well known around the building and, before she died, Jackie shared what hospice care meant to her.

"One of my fellow patients once put it like this: “The hospital saved my life, but the hospice taught me how to live.""Ian Whilde

Ian has advanced prostate cancer and attends our Wellbeing courses such as Wellbeing Matters and social afternoons. Ian recently shared an account of his time at St Wilfrid’s Hospice and how the team have improved his life.

"Agreeing to go into the hospice was one of the last decisions Mike made and one of the best ones, too: the whole family’s experience of the hospice was truly enriching and meant we could be Mike’s family again rather than his carers."Julie Crush

Julie visited one of our bereavement support counsellors after Mike died and adds: ‘I was amazed at how hospice care went beyond care for the patient. At every step, the family was involved and after Mike died I was offered some counselling. I didn’t think I needed it, but it helped me no end.’
