Forget-me-not Appeal

Celebrate the life of your loved ones this summer.

We would like to invite you to watch our virtual Forget-me-not Service, as led by our Chaplaincy Support Coordinator, Peter O'Brien. Please download the Order of Service below to have when you watch the service.

As part of the service our Psychological and Bereavement Support Worker, Natalie Birmingham, shares her story and Rabbi Fabian Sborovsky from the Menorah Synagogue in Manchester reads a poem.

Although we can’t all come together to enjoy a service as a community, we can still take a few moments to reflect on a loved one and the loss of a loved one. We understand that it is difficult, sometimes overwhelming and made more difficult with the current climate, which is why we want you to know that despite everything that is happening in the world, St Ann’s is still providing the same care and support.

Many of us have lost people we love. St Ann’s Forget-me-not Appeal is a beautiful way to celebrate their lives – whether they have been cared for at the hospice or not.  

This year, we’re celebrating 50 years of providing care to the Greater Manchester community. Your donations will help us ensure we can continue to provide the best possible care for future generations, so patients and families can continue to receive world-class specialist support when they need it most. 

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. 

Who will you remember?

Janet is joining this year’s Forget-me-not Appeal to remember her mum and dad.   

Read about how St Ann’s cared for Janet’s 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 Janet’s – now and for future generations.

This year, to celebrate 50 years of care for local people, we partnered with Manchester artist Lindi Kirwin and The Trafford Centre on a special art installation, created with a thousand metal forget-me-nots.

The exhibition is now over but you can still buy one of the limited-edition forget-me-nots to honour someone you love or to celebrate a milestone. Find out more at 

We also have a full forget-me-not range than you can buy online and in our shops. Visit to find out more.
