Celebration Tree

We celebrate those who support us and most of all we celebrate life as much as possible because we know all too well how precious it is. That’s why we love our Celebration Tree and want you to be a part of it. You can dedicate a leaf to celebrate anything or anyone on our tree.

Remember a loved one with an inscribed leaf

Dedicate a leaf on our Celebration Tree today

Whoever you are celebrating or remembering, a leaf on our celebration tree is a great way to do this and, in turn, make a real difference to those living with a life-limiting illness.

There are three types of leaf that you can choose from:

Bronze leaf – £110

By purchasing a Bronze leaf, you could make it possible for our medical team to have outpatient appointments so that patients can talk through their symptoms and concerns

Gold leaf – £480

Most popular!

When you purchase a Gold leaf, you could make pain medication available for all our patients on the IPU for three days

Silver leaf – £260

By purchasing this leaf, you could make it possible for 20 people to have a bereavement lunch and remembrance afternoon

In return for your dedication and donation you’ll have a special place to visit any day of the year to celebrate or remember. As a permanent feature in the hospice you will be able to visit the tree, come rain or shine for quiet reflection, remembrance and celebration. You will also be invited to attend and join in with others that have chosen to commit to the hospice in this way through a celebratory event where you’ll be able to see you leaf when it is added, and of course we’ll put the kettle on and have some of our delicious cakes for you too.

About the celebration tree

Our tree represents the cycle of life, trees are known to last many generations so that’s why we wanted to create a tree for people to be celebrated.

Our celebration tree has been designed by Perspex artist Claudia Ashley-Brown. She produces unique, bespoke trees for Hospices, hospitals, community projects across the UK. Reflecting on Herefordshire’s relationship with trees, and specifically apple trees, the trunk has been crafted from a piece of apple wood from a tree in the orchard right next to St Michael’s by local wood and resin artist Andy Gray-Ling from Manor Wood Designs near Leominster. This collaboration between Claudia & Andy has created a tree that is completely unique to us and celebrates the county and its people in all it’s different facets.

We are thankful to ‘Beth’s Wish’ for supporting us to create this Celebration Tree. Beth Davies was cared for by St Michael’s Hospice before she died ten years ago, her family have been dedicated to supporting our work ever since. Beth’s Mum, Helen and sister, Gemma, invite you to create a meaningful celebration of your loved one on the Celebration Tree.

Made possible with support from Beth’s Wish
