AS THE team at Queenscourt Hospice get set to mark their Pearl Anniversary and mark 30 years of providing compassionate care for local people with life-limiting illnesses, they are inviting members of the public to celebrate someone they love, whilst also raising much-needed funds.
During the past 12 months, the Covid-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on the Kew hospice’s fundraising events and initiatives, which has resulted in a significant loss of income for the hospice.
Now, they are hoping that as many people as possible will get involved by making a donation and dedicating a flower in their virtual Forget-Me-Not Meadow as they launch their 2021 Forget-Me-Not Appeal.
Every donation will help Queenscourt to continue providing exceptional palliative care for more than 1,800 patients from across Southport, Formby and West Lancashire every year and to support their families.
Go to https://visufund.com/forget-me-not-appeal-2021 to make a donation, choose your flower and its colour and then write a special message in honour of a loved one. You can also upload a photo of the person you are honouring and share your flower with friends and family on social media sites Facebook and Twitter.
Kate Tipton-Thomas, at Queenscourt, said: “After the exceptionally challenging year that we have all had, it is wonderful to see spring come around again. Whilst we cannot yet invite people into our beautiful hospice gardens, we are hoping to create a magnificent virtual Forget-Me-Not Meadow filled with heart-felt messages in celebration of loved ones.
“We hope that you will join us in this celebration by dedicating a flower to someone who is special to you. Every donation really does a difference.”
