Hospice launches A Rose to Remember

This summer, St. Joseph’s Hospice in Thornton is inviting people to remember a loved one by dedicating a rose in their memory as part of its summer remembrance event.

The hospice in Thornton is creating a special Rose to Remember garden in its woodland grounds for families to visit during the summer where they will see their own special rose.

Each rose will include the name of the person being remembered and their relationship to the person dedicating the rose.

Maxine Armstrong, head of fundraising and lottery at St. Joseph’s Hospice, said: “It helps families to have a special focus of remembrance at different times of the year and during seasons which hold a special significance to them and the memories they hold.

“A Rose to Remember is a lovely way that families can pay tribute to the lives of their loved ones and we are very fortunate to have such beautiful woodland grounds which are open throughout the year and are the perfect place to sit, reflect and remember, particularly during the warmer summer months.”

At the end of the summer, all those who have dedicated a rose to a loved one will be invited to the hospice to view the garden and enjoy afternoon tea and cake. Families will then be able to take their rose home or, if they prefer, leave it in the Rose to Remember garden at the hospice.

To dedicate A Rose to Remember, the hospice asks for a minimum donation of £5 per rose. Dedication forms are available to download at or simply call 0151 932 6044 to give your details over the phone.
