Forget-me-not Spring Appeal

Celebrate the life of your loved ones this spring.

Many people find the gardens at the hospice offer a place of tranquility and a space for reflection. Sometimes, the fresh air and open skies give people space to open up a bit more, and talk more freely about our feelings. The benefits of being outdoors, and experiencing the smells and sounds of nature are shown to help wellbeing.

The symbol of St Ann’s Hospice is the Forget-me-not, and these flowers comes back every year to the hospice gardens and help us remember people we have supported in past years who are now gone but not forgotten.

Will you make a donation to help the patients and family members who need the support of St Ann’s this spring?

Your donations are appreciated by everyone at St Ann’s. Thanks to the kindness of the community, thousands of people are helped and supported every year through what can be a very difficult time. Many of us have lost people we love. St Ann’s Forget-me-not Spring Appeal is a beautiful way to celebrate their lives – whether they have been cared for at the hospice or not.  

We’d love you to join with us and others across Greater Manchester as we remember loved ones.  

Dedicate a flower in memory of a loved one in our online Memory Meadow and share your photos and memories with family and friends. Or call us on 0161 498 3631 if you’d like to make a donation over the phone. 

Forget-me-not Remembrance Services

We will also be holding Forget-me-not remembrance services at both hospices on Saturday 11th June, led by Pete O’Brien, our Chaplaincy Support Coordinator. If you would like to attend either of these services, then please select which service you would like to attend and the number of tickets on the form below or call us on 0161 498 3631.

You can also give a donation to the hospice when you book your tickets. If you’d like to, type the amount you wish to donate in the box below which is labelled ‘optional’.

 

 

Who will you remember?

Wendy is joining this year’s Forget-me-not Spring Appeal to remember her son James.   

Read about how St Ann’s cared for James and his family on our website.

By making a dedication in memory of someone you love, you can help us continue to provide the best possible care for patients and families like James’s – now and for future generations. 

It was great that family and friends could visit James and we used to love the gardens at the hospice and being able to sit outside together. James used to enjoy a glass of Guinness from the drinks trolley or some ice cream, there were such nice treats. Wendy

We also have a Spring range that you can buy online and in our shops. Visit www.sah.org.uk/shop to find out more.
