Patients need help from community

Friday, 7 April 2017
The forget me not bows appeal is an opportunity to remember a loved one, by tying a ribbon in the Hospice garden.  Ribbons will be tied on to an art installation covered in thousands of hand crafted forget me nots.
Day Therapy Activities Co-ordinator, Jo Lister explains: “Our patients love to get involved with creative projects like this, and it’s a great way to get them all working together on something simple yet effective.  They have made a great start, but we are going to need a lot more forget me nots to cover the installation.  We are looking for members of the local community to get involved with the project, either as part of a school or group they may belong to, or at home with family and friends.  The forget me nots can be made in many different ways – knitted, crocheted, or sewn, and I can even provide a pattern if anyone needs one.  They are easy to make and it will be a fantastic way for the whole community to show their support for the Hospice.”
The poignant flowers will be unveiled at an event in the Hospice gardens on Friday 14 July, when supporters of the appeal will be invited to come along and tie their ribbons alongside the creative work of art.
