Honour your loved one with a memory leaf
A St Catherine’s Hospice Memory Leaf is a wonderful way to create a lasting tribute to someone special, whilst supporting your local hospice.
Our Memory Leaves are beautifully designed and hand-made in solid copper. They can be individually engraved with a dedication to create a truly unique and personalised way of remembering someone you love. The leaves are then hung on our Japanese Maple Memory Tree* situated in our courtyard garden at the heart of the hospice, and will be hung in pride of place at Pease Pottage when we move. Alternatively, they can be sent home to you, for you to hang in your own garden, or a location special to you.
*Our Memory Tree will be moving across from our old hospice to our new hospice in early 2024.
Memory Leaf Options
To have your personalised memory leaf hung on our tree, we ask for an initial donation of £35, followed by a £12.50 per month payment by Direct Debit.
Alternatively, you can make a one off donation of £65 to have your leaf sent home to you as a keepsake.
For us, our Memory Leaf is associated with very positive emotions; of the peaceful, happy times our parents spent in the care of St Catherine’s. As both our parents spent their last days at the hospice, it’s lovely having something tangible remain there; it’s like reconnecting them through the leaf.
The Memory Leaf is a very beautiful, well made object in its own right and we remain as pleased with it today as we were when we bought it – a lasting tribute to our parents and a lasting reminder of how very fortunate we were, as a family, that St Catherine’s was there for us.
