Remember someone special with a beautiful, hand-made copper 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 leaf is then hung on our Japanese Maple Memory Tree* situated in our courtyard garden at the heart of the hospice.
*for social distancing and infection control reasons, we currently can’t offer families the chance to hang the leaf on the tree themselves. A member of staff will be able to do this for you, take a picture to show you and then you will be able to visit your leaf once we are able to ease access restrictions. Alternatively, you may wish to purchase a leaf and hang it in your own garden or other location special to you.
St Catherine’s memory tree is a beautiful
Japanese maple, situated at the heart of the hospice in a small, secluded courtyard garden. Individually engraved solid copper leaves hang
from the branches, each one in remembrance
of someone special.
This peaceful and private area can be visited by family and friends, (if current Government guidance and hospice COVID19 measures allow). Please check with our team by calling 01293 447376 in advance.
You can decide how long your individual leaf hangs on the memory tree based on the suggested donations below. After this time it will be returned to you to display somewhere special.
1 Year = £100
2 Years = £180
You can also pay a one-off fee of £25 followed by £10 each month by direct debit.
Alternatively, if you’d like to buy an engraved leaf and hang it at home, you can purchase the leaf for £50.
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.
