FORGET-ME-NOT

FAMILIES REMEMBER LOVED ONES WITH CERAMIC FLOWERS AT EDINBURGH HOSPICE

St Columba’s Hospice in Edinburgh is blooming with Forget-Me-Nots after Johnson Tiles created a garden of ceramic flowers for the hospice’s new Tribute Funds initiative.

St Columba’s Hospice, 15 Boswall Road, Edinburgh, EH3 5RW. St Columba’s Hospice is a leading palliative care provider for patients across Edinburgh and the Lothians. The Hospice provides care to people in their own homes, in their communities and in the Hospice through our outpatients and inpatients units. The Hospice was the first modern hospice in Scotland and opened in 1977. It costs around £8million a year to keep the Hospice running and 70% of the money comes from fundraising.  Tribute Funds – to show people the Tribute Garden that is within the Hospice grounds, each ceramic flower in the garden represents a tribute fund. A tribute fund is a special way for people to raise money in memory of a loved one, seeing all their fundraising in one place and supporting the Hospice’s work  Neil Hanna Photography www.neilhannaphotography.co.uk 07702 246823

The Tribute Funds allow bereaved families to fundraise for the hospice in memory of their loved one. When a fund is set up a flower is allocated to the family, and on the first donation, a delicate copper leaf – which can be inscribed with a message – is added to the flower stem.

Each of the 800 Tribute Fund Forget-Me-Not flowers in the hospice’s courtyard garden are individually unique, hand-made at Johnson Tiles’ Stoke-on-Trent factory, and triple glazed to ensure a lasting reminder for families for years to come.
