Loved ones remembered
Families who want to remember loved ones and support the work of Beaumond House Community Hospice, Newark, in their name can take part in a new memory tree project.
Fundraising manager Cathy Lowe said a Beaumond House Memory Tree page was the perfect way to remember a family member or loved one.
To start a page one person sends a piece with their memories along with two photographs. Friends and family can then leave comments, share their memories, stories and pictures to make the tree grow.
Cathy said there was no charge to set up the page and it could be used as an easy way to make donations in a person’s memory at any time, for instance on special anniversaries.
“It means that family, friends and loved ones can share their memories and contribute to their fund,” she said.
Charlotte Coggins, the HR manager at the hospice, set up a page in memory of her father, Guy Downing.
Mr Downing, a retired newsagent, was diagnosed with cancer in 2011. It was his wish to die at home, which was made possible with the help of the Beaumond House Hospice At Home team.
Luke O’Reilly, of Newark, has set up a page in memory of his mother, Dianne Howell, who died at the hospice in November, 2013.
Since then Luke has been a regular supporter of the hospice and raised more than £1,700 by taking part in Sober For October.
To set up a memory page send an email to email@example.com or speak to a member of the fundraising or care team at the hospice.
