A local charity unveiled a poignant and touching ‘Remember Me’ roses display at its annual garden fete, held today in its gardens. The event witnessed the first look of a breathtaking river of a thousand hand-crafted metal roses, each a tribute to the memory of people who are no longer with us.
The ‘Remember Me’ roses display in the gardens at Prospect Hospice serves as a beautiful and enduring way to honour and remember loved ones who have died.
Carolyn Bell, director of patient services at Prospect Hospice said: “I am delighted that this year we introduced the ‘Remember Me’ roses display at our garden fete. This colourful installation is a poignant marker of how many people our community have loved and lost and how their memory still lives on with those they left behind. As a community charity, we wanted to create an opportunity to bring local people together to remember the lives of the people that matter to them who have sadly died. The stunning display has been appreciated by our patients and their families too as an additional temporary garden feature.”
“We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of our supporters, especially as times are difficult for so many,” explained Carolyn. “Every penny raised will help us to continue running the hospice’s vital services, providing care for many people at home and in the hospice, all free of charge to patients and their families in Swindon and north east Wiltshire.”
There are still a limited number of roses available to purchase for a suggested minimum donation of £30 until the end of September. The cost of crafting each rose has been kindly supported by the team at Arval UK meaning that all donations will go directly to caring for people living with a terminal illness in the community.
“Supporting the ‘Remember Me’ roses for Prospect Hospice is incredibly important,” said Zoe Maitland, head of sustainability at Arval UK. “Not only will they raise valuable funds for the hospice, but they are made from recycled cans, which helps them to be created sustainably. As a result of the initiative, we also collected our colleagues’ empty cans and sent them to the roses’ producers, so they can make more repurposed creations for other worthy causes similar to Prospect Hospice.”
Everyone is welcome to come and see the display which will run until the end of September. Afterward, the roses will be collected by those who dedicated them to cherish in a special place of their own.
